This easy one-pan chicken snap pea stir-fry skillet is packed with tons of pretty spring veggies and fresh ginger with a homemade Asian sauce makes it so flavorful!
The arrival of all the spring food starts….noooooow!
And oh man, I honestly thought this day would neeeeeeever come. Wisconsin winters tend to always take away your sense of hope.
But now…we eat all the spring food. Nothing less than all of it.
And surprise, surprise, it’s all hanging out in a skillet…AGAIN! You know how things roll around here.
So basically guys, this chicken snap pea stir-fry you see today is this year’s take on a spring skillet. I always somehow end up doing several every year this time of year soooooo…this is the glorious first of several.
And yes, those are sugar snap peas you see. ??
So my stir-fries always involve 3 steps. Seriously, 3 steps and then it’s chow time.
- Saute the veggies. Set ’em aside. Done
- Saute the chicken. Bam
- Make the sauce right in the pan with the chicken. Throw the veggies back in. The end.
A gorgeous springtime chicken stir-fry if I ever saw one, guys.
Almost too pretty to eat but um….please don’t let that stop you.
