Oriental shirataki, vegan or not

Personally, I am a very fan of Asian cuisine, among my favorites are Japanese, Vietnamese and Thai cuisine, although so far everything I have tried has enchanted me. For this reason, I have decided to propose this recipe, which is very easy to prepare and has a lovely oriental aroma. In addition, I present 2 versions: the vegan version with tofu and the non-vegan version with chicken, so that everyone can prepare it.
