Walnut Chicken



I am a huge fan of Chinese food. It is a good way to get the kiddos to eat veggies. Plus, it is very economical for a family our size. A portion of meat goes a long way! :)

This dish is one of my favorites. I love ginger and snow peas! If you do decide to make this, my only recommendation is to use a reduced salt soy sauce! :)

Walnut Chicken ~

1 T cornstarch

3 T soy sauce

1 T dry sherry

1/2 t ground ginger

1 lb chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces

4 T oil

1/3 cup sliced green onions

1 clove of garlic

1/2 lb fresh snow peas, tips and strings removed

1 cup walnut pieces

  1. Combine cornstarch, soy sauce, sherry and ginger in a medium-sized bowl; add chicken pieces; let stand 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat pan; add 3 T oil; heat until smoking; add green onions, garlic and snow peas. Cook 3 minutes, stirring mixture with slotted spoon. Remove mixture to a bowl.
  3. Add remaining oil to wok; heat; add chicken pieces until done and soy mixture begins to coat chicken, about 5 minutes. Add walnuts and vegetable mixture. Toss until mixed. Serve with hot cooked rice, if you wish.
