Method: 

To prepare the noodles and sea vegetable: Soak noodles in a bowl with enough hot water to cover them for about 5 minutes. Test noodles. They should be al dente. If more soaking time is needed, continue to retest every few minutes to desired tenderness. Drain noodles and set aside. In a separate bowl, soak arame with enough cold water to generously cover. It will triple in volume, add more water if needed. Set aside.

To prepare marinade: Whisk together tamari, lime juice, garlic, ginger, coriander, sugar and pepper flakes in a medium bowl until well blended. Place chicken in marinade, coating it completely. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour or overnight.

To prepare the dish: Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat, add onion and sauté for about 2 minutes. Lift chicken out of marinade, reserve marinade for later use. Add chicken to the skillet and sear until just browned, about 4 minutes. Add broccoli, mushrooms, bell pepper, green onion, reserved marinade, and 1 cup of water. Stirring frequently, sauté until tender and bright in color, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain arame, discarding liquid. Add arame and sprouts to the skillet, toss to incorporate. Serve immediately accompanied with noodles.
