    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots and thinly slice into rounds. Pull off and discard the tough string that runs the length of each snap pea pod. In a bowl, combine the soy glaze, hoisin sauce, vinegar, 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.

    2 Brown the chicken

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper if desired. In a large, high-sided pan (or pot), heat half the sautéed aromatics (you will have extra) on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned.

    Add the sliced carrots to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the prepared peas. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
