Prepare the noodles. Open the bag of noodles -- you'll notice a fishy odor, which is normal and is easily removed by rinsing and boiling. Pour the noodles into a colander and rinse them with cold water. Then add them to a saucepan and add enough water to cover them. Bring the water to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Drain, rinse, and return them to the saucepan. In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce with the sesame oil, chili paste and sugar. Pour this over the noodles and gently toss. Cover and set aside.
Make the stir-fry. Lightly coat a medium-sized sauté pan with the oil and place it over medium heat. Add the carrots, pea sprouts, garlic and ginger and stir to combine. Sauté until the carrots are tender, about 5 minutes.Add the cilantro, chicken scallions and sesame seeds. Stir, cook for about 30 seconds, and turn off the heat.
Assemble. Add the noodles to the sauté pan and turn the heat on to low. Gently toss all of the ingredients together. Once everything is warm, remove the pan from the heat and serve.
