Steam fresh peas for 3 minutes, or defrost frozen peas. Drain and set aside.
Rinse fresh Chinese pea pods. Remove stems and strings along top and bottom, leaving pods whole. In a small skillet, stir-fry pea pods in peanut oil for a few minutes until tender-crisp. If using frozen pea pods, defrost and stir-fry just to quickly heat through. Set aside to cool.
Combine rice, bean sprouts, chestnuts and chives in a bowl. Add cooled peas and pea pods. Pour Oriental Dressing over all. Toss well. Chill for several hours before serving.
