This stir-fry is our riff on a recipe from “Simple Chinese Cooking” by Australian chef Kylie Kwong. We love her match of syrupy honey and spicy ginger with savory-sweet oyster sauce and aromatic Chinese five-spice. Our addition of snow peas brightens the color, adds a little snap and makes this a one-pan meal. The chicken marinates for 15 minutes before cooking; this is a good time to prep the snow peas. Serve with steamed rice.




Don’t add the chicken to the skillet until the oil begins to smoke. A very hot pan achieves quick browning and liquid reduction without overcooking the lean chicken breast.

Made this last night. Quick, easy and tasty! Served over long grain rice, doubled the snow peas to finish them off. Loved the amount of ginger and sweet spice they added.
Will add to Tuesday nights menue

This was a great, quick meal. My family including my 2 sons enjoyed and ate everything. The sauce has a lot of flavor for being mixed so easily and quickly!

decent stir-fry, i sliced up thighs instead of breasts and threw in frozen peas. great way to clean out the fridge.

Made this last night. Really a nice easy stir fry, and I loved the ginger and I may julienne it next time, also more snow peas and a little less honey. But overall, very good!

I made this with broccoli (it's what I had) and it was very easy and so delicious. Great recipe for a weeknight, looking forward to leftovers!
