Add chicken and continue to stir fry, separating the pieces as they cook, till the chicken is completely white.

Add mushrooms, snap peas and sherry, tossing with chicken.

Sprinkle walnuts over and stir to combine. Transfer to platter and garnish with reserved chopped green scallion. Serve with hot rice.

Don't let love interfere with your appetite. It never does with mine.
