submitted by Jamie

2 lg. garlic cloves, minced
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. honey
2 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 lb. cooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
1/4 c. chopped green onions
pepper to taste

Combine garlic, soy sauce, water, honey, 1 tablespoon oil, cornstarch and pepper. Stir chicken into marinade and mix to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, stirring once to twice. In large skillet, heat remaining oil. Using slotted spoon, transfer chicken to skillet. Stir-fry about 5 minutes. Add reserved marinade; continue to cook and stir about 30 seconds until thickened. Remove to platter. Garnish with green onion. Serve with snow peas, if desired. (I didn't let the chicken marinade at all! I just threw everything together and let it cook for like 15 minutes! It still tasted fantastic! I also added a 16 oz. bag of frozen stir fry veggies and it was delicious seved over rice!!!)4 servings
