Cut carrots and cucumber horizontally into quarters, then cut each quarter

Bring a pot of water to boil and cook carrots for 1 minute.

Remove from heat and let carrots and noodles soak in the hot water for another 2 - 3 minutes.

Drain noodles and carrots into a colander and rinse with cold water.

Place in a bowl with reserved cucumber, chili pepper, Sichuan red pepper, garlic, and green onion.

Heat a skillet over high heat until hot.

Carefully add canola or sunflower oil to the skillet.

When the oil in the pan is hot, remove the skillet from heat and carefully pour the hot oil over the noodles and spices.

Toss with shredded chicken, salt, ginger, sesame oil, sesame oil, and Chinese vinegar.

Serve cold, or gently fry in a pan.
