EwE - Orange-Sesame Chicken Stir Fry with Snow Peas

It is a double billing for me this week,  as I also chose our Eating with Ellie dish, Orange-Sesame Chicken Stir Fry with Snow Peas.  Stir fries are on regular rotation at my place as they are quick and easy.  However, this one was something else.

These ingredients:

are transformed into this:

The sauce was based on orange juice and chicken stock, and toasted sesame seeds are liberally scattered on top of the chicken and snow peas.  As suggested by Ellie, I served the stir fry on a bed of brown rice.

I have to say this is one of the best things I have ever tasted, and certainly the best stir fry I have made in a long time.  I pretty much go on auto pilot with the same sauce and similar veges in my stir fires all the time, but this version was different - sweet and nutty, almost like eating a Snickers bar in stir fry form, if that makes sense.  This one is a definite keeper.

To see what the others thought of this stir fry, visit the LYL section of the EwE website.

This was delicious! I use the wrong kind of peas however but it was still good! Great pick!

Wow that's a big rap for it! I can't quite get my head around the idea of a Snickers bar in a stir fry so I think I'll just have to try it for myself! :D
