Chicken and Snap Pea Stir Fry
So you really, really don’t feel like cooking. (We’ve been there.) But if you have five ingredients, a few pantry staples and 20 minutes, you can make chicken and snap pea stir fry. It’s easy, tasty and way healthier than that greasy takeout you were about to order.
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
2½ cups snap peas
1¼ cups boneless skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons Sriracha (optional)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, plus more for finishing
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for finishing
1. In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the scallions and garlic, and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the bell pepper and snap peas, and sauté until just tender, 2 to 3 minutes.
2. Add the chicken and cook until it is golden and fully cooked and the vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes.
3. Add the soy sauce, rice vinegar, Sriracha (if using) and sesame seeds; toss well to combine. Allow the mixture to simmer for 1 to 2 minutes.
4. Stir in the cilantro, then garnish with a sprinkle of extra cilantro and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
