Stir Fried Chicken Glass Noodles - Who woulda thunk it!

I've been on a noodle kick of late and decided to try glass noodles. I don't know if many are aware what glass noodles are but I definitely had no idea. I thought that glass noodles are same as rice noodles but nope..glass noodles are transparent noodles made from starch and water. Glass noodles I made were made out of pea starch, green mung bean starch and water. Pretty healthy overall and were delicious! I can't believe how easy they were to make and fun!!
