  • In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, sesame oil and black pepper. Mix well and reserve half in another small bowl for noodles.

  • In a large bowl, marinade chicken in half of sauce mixture for at least 30 mins or overnight for best results.

  • In a large pan, heat oil and add sliced ginger, scallions, and garlic. Cook until scallions are golden brown and slightly crispy; remove from pan to cool.

  • In the same pan, fry marinated chicken thighs skin side down for 6-8 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 6-8 minutes until internal temperature is 165 degrees Fahrenheit; rest the cooked chicken.

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook Barilla Angel Hair pasta until al dente; reserve 1 cup pasta water.

  • In the same pan as chicken, add butter and reserved half of sauce. Add all the scallion oil and bring to a simmer. Right away, add cooked pasta and 1/2 cup of pasta water. Only use other 1/2 cup pasta water if needed; toss until pasta is evenly coated.

  • Slice cooked chicken thighs into 1/2-inch pieces. Serve with scallion oil pasta. Garnish with fresh scallions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
