When I was a young lass, my favorite place to eat was our local Chinese restaurant. It didn’t actually matter WHICH restaurant, just that it was Chinese. I would always order a chicken dish, and more often than not, it would be chicken with snow peas.

I glommed onto Chinese food for a few reasons. It didn’t make my belly ache like the other restaurants we would go to. And I didn’t have to worry about whether there would be cheese in something. Because as much as I hated cheese, I hated the feeling of sending my food back more.

I also loved being able to look at the menu and have 30+ options to choose from. Every other restaurant we went to, and it was hamburger and french fries. Or chicken fingers and french fries. And that. was. it.

So it’s not surprising that the kinds of foods I reach for week after week are Asian-inspired.

Mongolian Beef. Sriracha Lo Mein. Beef with Broccoli and Cauliflower. Beef with Snow Peas. Kung Pao Meatballs. (Should I keep going? Because I can…)

This recipe for chicken and snow peas is no different. It’s sweet and savory and filled with garlicky goodness. Oh, and if snow peas aren’t your thing, feel free to sub them for any other vegetables you can find.
