Add peas, celery, water chestnuts and mushrooms; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup broth and the chicken; cover and simmer for 3 minutes. Combine sugar, ginger, reserved mushroom liquid and remaining cornstarch, soy sauce and broth; stir into skillet and cook until thickened, about 4 minutes. Add pimientos. Garnish with almonds and onion. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: Small fresh white mushrooms can be substituted for the dried shiitakes. Eliminate the warm water and the soaking step.
