Directions:
Rinse chicken and pat dry. Cut into small (1/2 to 1 inch) pieces. Combine soy sauce, ginger, cornstarch, vinegar, garlic and red pepper in large bowl and stir until corn starch is dissolved. Add chicken to bowl and toss, then marinate at least 10 minutes.

Heat large skillet or wok over high heat, add oil. Add walnuts and stir-fry about 1 minute or until slightly browned. Remove walnuts to small bowl. Add chicken mixture to skillet; stir-fry about 5-7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in middle. Add stir-fry vegetables. (Be generous. I usually fill the whole skillet.) Stir-fry until heated through. Add walnuts at the last minute. You may need to thicken with a little more cornstarch. Serve over rice.
