“This recipe was in our local newspaper. Looked delicious and fairly low carb. Wanted to post it for safe keeping. This did not have a cooking time. I estimate30 mins.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice chicken very thin on the diagonal. In a large bowl toss the chicken with 1 Tbsp of the soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoons of sesame oil, and 1 teaspoons rice vinegar.
  2. In another bowl, combine 1/4 water with the ketchup (I use sugar free), remaining soy sauce, 1 Tbsp vinegar and 1-1/2 tsp sesame oil.
  3. Trim the scallions and separate the dark green tops from the light green and white bottoms. Slice the tops into 2inch pieces and the bottoms in thin rounds. Combine both in medium bowl with the snow peas and ginger.
  4. Heat 1-1/2 Tbsp of canola oil in large non stick skillet or stir fry pan over med. high heat until hot. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally until it loses its raw appearance. Transfer to a plate.
  5. Add remaining canola oil, scallions, snow peas, and ginger and cook stirring occasionally, until the scallions and ginger start to brown.
  6. Return the chicken to the pan and add ketchup mixture and half of the sesame seeds. Cook until chicken is cooked through and snow peas are crisp tender.
  7. Transfer to plate and sprinkle with remaining sesame seeds.
