This recipe pairs the crunchy texture of walnuts with the softness of chicken in a classic stir-fry. “For a variation, try this recipe with other nuts such as pine nuts or almonds, but be sure the nuts you use are very fresh. Stale nuts tend to go soft and will spoil both the texture and the flavor of the dish.”–Ken Hom
