This healthy snow pea and chicken stir-fry recipe has a citrusy mojo sauce. Because stir-fries cook up quickly, have all the ingredients prepped and next to the stove before you turn on the heat. Serve over brown rice or soba noodles.

  • To prepare stir-fry: Heat a 14-inch flat-bottom carbon-steel wok over high heat. (You'll know it's hot enough when a bead of water vaporizes within 1 to 2 seconds of contact.) Add 1 tablespoon oil and swirl to coat. Add chicken and stir-fry until just cooked, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a large plate.

  • Swirl in another 1 tablespoon oil; add carrots and scallions. Stir-fry for 2 minutes.

  • Swirl in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil; add garlic and snow peas. Stir-fry until the vegetables are tender, 2 to 4 minutes more.

  • Return the chicken to the wok. Add the reserved sauce and cook, gently stirring, until well coated and hot, 1 to 2 minutes.

Tips

Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate the sauce (Step 1) for up to 3 days.
