Stir-fry Mix Vegetable with Chicken

For this summer I planted some sweet peas ,string bean and snow pea from seeds at my vegetable patch.Two week ago before I'm left for our summer vacation to New England,I harvest 80% of the mature peas at my vegetable garden.The reason is when I'm back from my vacation I afraid all my vegetables plants is dying due to heat waves and lack of watering.Yes!! When I'm back from vacation mostly all my peas plants was dried and wilted:(
Well,what to do with all the sweet pea and snow pea? I guess organic peas is better off eating raw by itself or stir-fry right? Since I'm not use to eat raw peas so I stir-fry all the peas with chicken..This dish remind me of my mom cooking when I'm home except mine is too watery.I added too much water when cooking cauliflower but it's still a good dish!






Ingredients:
1/2 cauliflower,cut floret,washed and blanched
15-20 sweet peas,removed both end tips,washed
10 snow peas,removed both end tip,washed
1 small carrot,peeled and sliced
1 small boneless chicken breast,(200gm)sliced small + 2 tbsp corn flour + 2 tbsp soy sauce(velveting method)
5-6 cloves garlic,peeled and minced
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp chicken bouillon powder
salt to taste
some water if it's too dry
Method;
1:Heat large pan or wok with oil and garlic at medium heat.Fry garlic until fragrant,add in cauliflower,carrot and 1/2 cup water or less..Use spatula to stir for about 2-3 minutes until tender soft.
2:Add in chicken mixture(velveting method),slowly stir the ingredients for 4-5 minutes ,then add in sweet peas,snow peas,oyster sauce,chicken bouillon and salt to taste.Increase heat to high,stir all the ingredients well for 2-3 minutes.
3:Check the seasoning before dish our and serve warm.
