For the chicken: In a medium sized bowl whisk together the honey, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil. Season with a pinch of salt. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Set aside to allow the flavors to develop.
Meanwhile, prepare the noodles: Cook the noodles according to package directions, MINUS 1-2 minutes, the noodles should still be chewy as they will continue to cook in the next steps. (SEE NOTES) Drain the noodles, rinse with cool water and drizzle with 1 teaspoon of Sesame Oil. Toss and set the noodles aside.
Stir Fry: Heat a large skillet (or wok) over medium-high heat. Add the peanut oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add the garlic, ginger and white bottoms of the scallions. Stir-fry, stirring continuously, for 30 seconds. Add the red bell pepper, carrots and snow peas. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened and slightly charred, 3-4 minutes.
Add the noodles to the pan and stir-fry, tossing continuously, for 1 minute or until hot. Add in the chicken with sauce along with the cornstarch and water mixture. Toss everything well to combine. Cook 1-2 minutes or until sauce thickens. (If noodles become too dry add a splash or two of water as needed). Remove from heat.
To serve: Transfer noodles to a platter and garnish with green tops of scallions, sesame seeds and cilantro. Squeeze fresh lime over top. Serve immediately and Enjoy!
