      Mix raw cubed chicken with 1 Tbsp garlic, 1 Tbsp ginger, and 2 Tbsp soy sauce. Leave to marinate while you prep the veggies.

      Yum! I made this last night, and once you get past all the chopping (which isn't that much anyway) it was very easy to make. I did make a couple "customizations": I replaced snow peas with sugar snap peas, because I already had them in the fridge. I also used ground ginger in place of fresh (teaspoon measurements where it called for Tablespoon measurements). I served ours over brown rice, because I ALWAYS have brown rice available. I let my chicken marinate in the fridge for about 40 minutes, so it turned out kinda brown-ish (from the soy sauce), but it sure was tasty! Oh! I also only used like, 3/4 of a yellow onion, because we are not huge onion fans, and I heard somewhere, from someone, that too much onion can make something bad happen to you. I may or may not have made that up. Whatever. :) People - don't freak out about the amount of garlic. I kinda did (it looks like a truckload, kinda), but it is perfect. Thanks for the great recipe! I'd definitely make this again.
