easy dinner

so dinner tonight was as planned, but not as good as dinner last night.
last night i made stir fry sugar snap peas with chicken with a mix of brown rice and barley.  healthy dinner!

some people just wash the sugar snap peas and then cook them.  but i hate the "strings" and so i like to take a little extra time to remove them.  here's what i mean - 


stir fry with chicken and top over a mix of brown rice and barley, mmmmmm

recipe is quite easy

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 tsp cornstarch
2 tbsp cooking wine
1 or 2 garlic cloves, diced
approximately 2 cups of sugar snap peas
1/2 tbsp oil (i use canola)
pinch salt

i like to slice the chicken into, well, slices.  mix with cornstarch and cooking wine and garlic.

heat pan, add oil, stir fry the chicken.  when it's just about done, pour it into a separate bowl.  add the sugar snap peas to the pan, stir fry and when it's just about done, add the chicken back in.  add some salt.  if there's too much liquid, take a little more cornstarch (1/2 -1 tsp), mix it with a little cold water and add it to your pan.  it should thicken it right up.  serve over the brown rice and barley.  nice and quick chinese style meal
