How to make it
- Cook rice according to instructions on package, using chicken stock in place of water if you choose.
- In a large bowl, combine 1 tbsp cornstarch and 1/2 cup cold water until smooth. Add peas, garlic, ginger, sugar, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes. Toss well to combine and set aside.
- In another bowl, whisk egg with remaining 3 tbsp cornstarch, salt & pepper. Add chicken. Toss to coat.
- Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Take about half of the chicken pieces (shake off excess coating) and add to skillet. Cook until golden, turning occasionally, for about 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining oil and chicken.
- Add snow pea mixture to skillet. Cover and cook until sauce thickens, about 3 minutes. Return chicken to skillet and toss to coat. Serve with rice.
