This easy Asian chicken stir fry has an addicting sriracha sauce and "velveted" restaurant style chicken. You'll never want to order take-out again!
1lbboneless skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced and velveted (see instructions)
8ozsugar snap peas
white rice, for serving
To velvet the chicken: Thinly slice the chicken breast and cut slices in half to create pieces about 1.5-2 inches in diameter. In a bowl, toss the chicken with 1 tbsp baking soda. Set aside for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, rinse thoroughly in a colander and pat dry.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, honey, sriracha, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and cornstarch.
Combine the chopped garlic, ginger, snap peas and scallions in a bowl.
In a large skillet or wok, warm 2 tbsp canola oil over med-high heat. Add the chicken and a splash or two of the sauce. Stir-fry until chicken is cooked through (no longer pink). Remove the chicken to a plate.
Add 1 more tbsp of oil to the pan and pour in the snap peas, garlic, ginger, and scallions. Cook for about 3-4 minutes or until snap peas are tender, but still crisp.
Return the chicken to the pan, and add the remaining sauce. Cook and stir until sauce thickens (about 4 minutes). Serve over white rice.
