Warm the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season both sides of the chicken and steak with salt and pepper. Place the chicken and steak in the skillet, and cook both sides of each meat for 3-4 minutes, or until cooked through and tender. Let chicken and beef rest for 5 minutes before cutting into strips, then set aside. In the same skillet the meat was cooked in, add the garlic and chives, and sauté until garlic is fragrant and chives start to wilt. In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, parsley, ginger, and cayenne pepper until smooth. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to low. Gradually pour in 1 cup of warm water, stirring continuously. In a large serving bowl, toss together the garlic, chives, rice noodles, and spinach. Place the chicken and beef on top, then pour the soy sauce broth over the dish. Sprinkle with bean sprouts before serving.

*Note: If you'd like, you can substitute the chicken breast with a cooked chicken drumstick coated in an Asian marinade.
