Ingredients

  • 12oz of Ayco Farms Snow Peas
  • 3 Ayco Farms Red Bell Peppers.
  • 4 tablespoons sesame seed oil.
  • ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper, or to taste
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat.
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced.
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest.
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice.

Preparation

  1. Cut 1 pound of boneless chicken into 1-by-2-inch strips; season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon sesame seed oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add 12oz of Ayco Farms snow peas and stir-fry until bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
  4. Add the remaining 2 teaspoons of sesame seed oil to the pan and heat on medium-high until shimmering.
  5. Add 1 pound of chicken and cook again, stirring, until lightly browned and opaque in the center, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the chicken to the bowl containing the peas.
