Chicken and Snow Peas

1 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 large skinless, boneless chicken breast
halves, cubed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
2 (8 ounce) cans sliced water chestnuts,
3 cups snow peas
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Whisk the chicken broth, soy sauce, cornstarch, and ginger together in a small bowl; reserve.
Heat oil in a large skillet or wok. Cook and stir chicken and garlic in the oil until chicken is cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, water chestnuts, and reserved chicken broth mixture. Cook until sauce begins to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir snow peas into the pan and cook until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.
