  2. Stir in garlic, onion, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and chili garlic sauce until onions have become translucent, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Lastly, stir in chestnuts and green onions, cook on low, about 2-3 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Note – you may not need additional salt as the soy sauce is salty.
