We love Chinese food and this is just one I make frequently. My kids don't care much for rice unless it's fried rice, so I serve as is....they love it.

Enjoy!

  1. Prepare sauce & have other ingredients ready.

  3. Heat a wok until good and hot. Add 2 - 3 tsp sesame oil. Swirl around.

  5. Place another 1 - 2 tsp sesame oil in wok and heat back up, then add onion, ginger and garlic. Stir fry about 20 seconds.
  6. Now add prepared sauce. Should be bubbling, nice and hot.
  7. Add the chicken back to the wok, along with the nuts, toss to combine and heat chicken through.

    Serve alone or over rice.
