Chicken & Sugar Snap Pea Stir-Fry

1 lb.  skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut crosswise into thin strips
3 1/2 Tbsp. peanut oil
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 Tbs. oyster sauce
3/4 lb. (375 g.) sugar snap peas, halved crosswise on the diagonal
Cooked white/brown rice for serving
Soy sauce for serving

In a bowl, toss the chicken strips with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the peanut oil, the baking soda, and the cornstarch. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove from the refrigerator 15 minutes before cooking.

Heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. When it is hot, add the chicken, spreading it out as much as possible. Season with salt and sear for 1 minutes without stirring, then stir until opaque throughout, 2-3 minutes. Stir in the oyster sauce and cook for 30 seconds. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Return the wok to high heat, add the peas, and stir-fry until tender-crisp, about 1 minute. Stir in the chicken and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Transfer to a  platter and serve right away with rice and soy sauce. Serves 4.
