In a medium bowl, season the cubed or strips of chicken with salt and pepper. Add half of teriyaki sauce and mix until the chicken is well-coated. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

In a wok or deep skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoons of sesame oil, then add the cooked noodles. Cook for 1-2 minutes, allowing the noodles to crisp, then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

In the same wok, heat 1/2 tablespoon of sesame oil, then add the chicken. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until browned on one side, then stir and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until fully cooked through. Set the chicken aside. You will know its ready when it starts to caramelized.

Stir and cook for 1-2 minutes, then season with salt and pepper and cook for 3 minutes more, until the vegetables are soft.

Add the cooked chicken and noodles back to the wok, along with the remaining ¼ cup teriyaki sauce. Toss well and cook for 2-3 minutes, until everything is well-combined. Garnish with sesame seeds.
