    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim ends off snow peas. Stem, seed, and slice red bell pepper into thin strips. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry. On a separate cutting board, cut chicken into ¾" dice. Season both sides with ¾ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Toss in a medium mixing bowl with cornstarch.

    Cook the Chicken

    Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan, shaking off excess cornstarch. Cook undisturbed until browned, 4-5 minutes. Then stir occasionally and cook until browned on two sides and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 2-3 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Start the Stir-Fry
