In a large non-stick wok or skillet, heat 1 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 1/2 teaspoon canola oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add chicken pieces, season lightly with salt and pepper and saute until cooked through, about 5 - 6 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
Return skillet to medium-high heat, add remaining 1 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil and 1 1/2 teaspoon canola oil. Add peas and carrots blend and green onions and sauté for 1 minute, add garlic and saute 1 minute longer. Push veggies to edges of pan, add eggs in center and cook and scramble.
