Directions

Slice the chicken into long, thin strips. Using a wok or heavy frying pan, heat the oil, then add the chicken and saute for 5 min. Stir in celery and garlic and continue cooking for another 3 min.
Add the chicken broth, soy sauce, and ginger. Heat to boiling before adding the pea pods and mushrooms. Cover and simmer for 5 min (do not overcook).
Mix the cornstarch and the water. Stir into the chicken mixture and cook until the liquid thickens, 1-2 min. Taste and add salt if necessary (this will depend on the saltiness of the broth).
Pour the stir-fry onto a round serving platter immediately and top with the almonds. Serve rice separately.
