1. In a large pot of salted, boiling water, blanch the noodles for 15 to 30 seconds, just to loosen them. Drain and set aside.
2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add the sesame oil and ginger and cook until fragrant, stirring often, about 1 minute. Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, until both the ginger and garlic are golden, about 1 minute longer.
3. Stir in the chicken and cook, stirring often, until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the chiles, rice wine, soy sauce and sugar and cook until the chicken is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes longer.
4. Stir in the scallions and noodles and turn off the heat. Add the basil, toss to combine, season with salt and pepper and serve.
