Sauce:

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, season chicken with salt and black pepper. Sprinkle cornstarch over chicken and stir until combined. Set aside.

  2. In a separate small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce. Set aside.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large wok or pan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until chicken is slightly brown and cooked through. Transfer to a medium plate and set aside.
  4. Add the remaining oil, then add broccoli and snap peas to the pan. Add garlic and ginger and cook for 3-4 minutes or until vegetables are just tender-crisp (cook a little bit longer if you like your vegetables softer).

  5. Return the cooked chicken back to the same pan. Give the sauce a whisk and pour over top. Allow the sauce to thicken and bubble (about 30 seconds - add more water as needed to thin out sauce if desired. Toss until coated and adjust seasonings as needed. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions, if desired and remove from heat. Serve hot with your favorite rice, cauliflower rice, quinoa, noodles or zoodles.
