In a medium bowl, whisk together ingredients for the sauce. Pour half over chicken in another bowl and marinate for at least 30 minutes. Reserve remaining sauce.
Prepare noodles according to package directions.
In a large non-stick pan or wok, heat 1 teaspoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and saute for 2-3 on each side, until browned. Remove chicken and set aside on a serving plate.
Swirl in another teaspoon of oil and add garlic and ginger. Stir-fry for 1 minute or until fragrant, add green onions and shallots and stir-fry for another minute. Add bell peppers, carrots, bok choy, and snow peas and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes, until vegetables are tender with a slight crisp. Transfer vegetables to serving platter.
Return pan to wok and add 2 teaspoons of oil. Add noodles and stir-fry for a minute. Pour reserved sauce and toss with tongs. Return chicken and vegetables to pan and coat with sauce. Once the sauce boils and thickens up, turn down heat and adjust seasonings. Add more water if the sauce is too thick.
Serve with sesame seeds and top with a sprinkle of sliced green onions, if desired.
