Stir in cornstarch and chili paste until dissolved; set aside. In a large bowl combine chicken, garlic, ginger and salt. In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 minutes on each side. Stir in blueberry mixture and 2 tablespoons water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce begins to thicken, about 3 minutes.

Stir in noodles, remaining cup of blueberries and half of the basil.  Reduce heat to low, cook just until blueberries are warm, about 1 minute. To serve, divide among pasta bowls. Garnish with pine nuts, coconut and remaining basil, if desired.
