It only takes 15 minutes to serve up a plate of Shanghai Noodles. No matter how close you live to a Chinese restaurant, these noodles will be fresher and faster! And Shanghai Noodles don't disappoint on flavor either, with their rich and deep soy sauce coating, crunchy bok choy, and savory chicken nestled between tender noodles. That takeout menu is going to start feeling redundant pretty soon!
