Knowing me you will be aware that I just don't like to cook on Friday's. I enjoy cooking every single day mainly on weekends where I can try some new dishes :) . But on Fridays I just want to parcel some food , enjoy 2-3 movies and relax , but this Friday was different SADLY :'( . I reached home and ordered food from my favorite Chinese restaurant but they said they were super packed so they can send food only after 2 hours :( .

I was hungry after the hectic day in office and I had done my shopping so I had everything at hand and it made no sense to wait for so long. Since it was Chinese in my head so I thought of trying some new Chinese recipe :) 

Some time back I had read that butter has been recent added in the Chinese dishes, suddenly I remembered that in one small resturant some 3-4 years back I had a buttery noodle. I was determined to try to make noodles with butter some time soon and what better than this Friday :) 

When I started my college, I had a very kind hearted friend "Barsha" who would very often treat me to different resturants during that time I had a Chinese chicken dish called "Chicken Taipai". So with my buttery noodles I decided to try making this chicken dish but since I was not aware of the recipe and I don't wanna hurt any sentiments so I called mine "CHICKEN TAIPE"
