Linda's Cashew Chicken Recipe

2 boned and skinned chicken breast halves
4 garlic cloves; crushed
1-1/3 tb Ginger root; minced
2 tb Sesame oil
4 tb Soy sauce; Tamari
1 lb Snow peas
6 tb Oil
1 c Cashews
1/4 c Chicken broth; or water
2 tb Cornstarch

Cut the chicken into small, bite-sized pieces. In a small bowl, combine the garlic (pushed through a garlic press), ginger, sesame oil and tamari. Stir the chicken into this marinade, and set aside. Break the stem ends off the snow peas. Place the oil in a wok or large skillet, and, when it is hot, stir in the cashews. Cook just for a couple of minutes, until the nuts are golden. Remove with a slotted spoon, and set them aside in a serving dish. Stir-fry the snow peas in the oil about two minutes, just until they have turned bright green. Add to the cashews in the serving dish. Stir-fry the marinated chicken in the oil just until it is opaque throughout, about 5 minutes. Dissolve the cornstarch in chicken broth and add to the pan along with the snow peas and cashews. Cook and stir just until thickened and hot through.
