3. Combine all the ingredients for the Stir-Fry Sauce in a small stainless steel bowl and set aside.

4. Heat a wok or heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons of oil and the marinated turkey, then stir-fry for 3–4 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165°F is reached. Remove and set aside.

5. Clean the wok or skillet with a cloth, then place back over medium-high heat. Add the remaining oil, then the ginger, garlic and onions. Stir-fry for 1 minute, then add the water chestnuts and stir-fry for an additional minute.
