*How to toast nuts:
Bake nuts uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in a 350° oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
It's a snap!
Boneless chicken breast for stir-fry is available in most larger grocery stores, but if you can't find it, cut boneless, skinless chicken breast halves into thin strips.
