Lunar New Year Long Life Noodles And Chicken
by Nanny Bubby
By Chef Katie Chin I had the great honor and total pleasure of being taught this dish by Chef Katie Chin during one of my live Facebook cooking segments. This recipe is filled with love and tradition and is a recipe that comes from her mother who found that the traditions during the lunar New Year of eating certain foods were meant to usher in wealth, good fortune prosperity and longevity in the new year! I love this recipe…..leave out the chicken and you have a beautiful vegetarian meal! Enjoy!
