In large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until tender but firm, about 8 minutes. Add carrots; cook for 30 seconds. Drain and rinse under cold water; set aside in colander.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry chicken until browned and no longer pink inside, 4 minutes.
