For the sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce, plus more to taste
4 teaspoons cornstarch
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon honey
For the stir fry:
2 tablespoons vegetable oil or light olive oil, divided
1 pound chicken breasts, boneless skinless, and cut into 1-inch pieces
salt, to taste
1 1/2 cups carrots, sliced to 1/6 inch thick pieces
1 small yellow onion, sliced
2 1/2 cups broccoli florets, chopped, rinsed, and leaving the water that clings to broccoli
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded, sliced into 1 1/2-inch long strips
1 1/2 cups sugar snap peas, sliced into halves

3 cloves garlic, minced
