Serves 4

2 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
4 tablespoons soy sauce, divided
black pepper
2/3 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons Thai chili garlic sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
1 stalk celery, sliced thinly on the bias
1 large carrot, sliced thinly on the bias
2 cups broccoli florets
1 1/2 cups snap peas (or snow peas)
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts
1/2 cup chopped canned baby corn

Add water chestnuts and baby corn, then stir to combine. Add the sauce and cashews to the the wok, then let sauce bubble for 2 minutes. Serve over cooked white rice.
