This is an easy recipe for Chicken and Pea Pods. Cut up all the vegetables you will be using. I used pea pods, garlic scapes, celery, mushrooms and carrots. I got the pea pods and garlic scapes from the clean food network. I had never used garlic scapes before but they are wonderful! They are the top part of the garlic bulb that is cut just before it flowers. They have a mild garlic flavor. In place of them you can use garlic and green onions if you desire.
