Prepare noodles according to directions on package.
In a bowl whisk together soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and sesame oil, set aside.
Heat oil in a wok or large and deep non-stick skillet over moderately high heat.
Add chicken (working to leave a little space between pieces so they'll brown) and cook 3 - 4 minutes, turn and continue to cook until cooked through, about 2 - 3 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate or sheet of foil.
Reduce heat slightly add remaining 1 Tbsp oil in skillet, add celery and saute 3 minutes.
Add cabbage and saute 2 minutes, then add carrots, green onions, garlic and ginger and saute 1 - 2 minutes longer, until veggies are all crisp tender.
Toss in noodles and chicken then pour soy sauce mixture over top and toss to coat. Serve warm.
*8 oz dry spaghetti (thin or regular) will work great too.
**Chicken thighs will work great too. Cook a few minutes longer as needed.
***I've also made this with hoisin sauce in place of oyster sauce when I don't have it. They have much different flavors but both give a delicious flavor.
