 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      each          boned and skinned chicken breast halves
    4                    Garlic cloves -- crushed
    1 1/3  tbsp          ginger root -- minced
    2       tb           Sesame oil
    4       tb           soy sauce, Tamari
    1      lb            Snow peas
    6       tb           Oil
    1      c             cashews
      1/4  c             chicken broth -- or water
    2      tbsp          cornstarch
 
    Cut the chicken into small, bite-sized pieces.  In a small bowl,
 combine
   the garlic (pushed through a garlic press), ginger, sesame oil and
 tamari.
    Stir the chicken into this marinade, and set aside.  Break the stem
 ends
   off the snow peas.  Place the oil in a wok or large skillet, and, when
 it
   is hot, stir in the cashews.  Cook just for a couple of minutes, until
 the
   nuts are golden.  Remove with a slotted spoon, and set them aside in a
   serving dish.  Stir-fry the snow peas in the oil about two minutes,
 just
   until they have turned bright green.  Add to the cashews in the
 serving
   dish.  Stir-fry the marinated chicken in the oil just until it is
 opaque
   throughout, about 5 minutes.  Dissolve the cornstarch in chicken broth
 and add to the pan along with the snow peas and cashews.  Cook and stir
 just until thickened and hot through.   Source:  The 20-Minute Natural
