2. Wash and cut the snow peas, onion, and garlic. Onions should be chopped; garlic should be minced; and snow peas should be cut at a slight diagonal.  Also cut the chicken in very thin slices and set aside.

3. Toss 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and 2 teaspoons of sesame oil in the wok and turn burner on medium-high heat.  When the oil starts to bubble, it’s time to throw in the chicken.
