READY IN: 20mins




  • MARINATING: Put all marinade ingredients into resealable zip plastic bag; seal and rotate to mix.
  • Cut chicken into thin bite-size strips (approximate 2"x1/4"x1"), cutting across the grain of the meat.
  • Put chicken in marinade and rotate to evenly coat chicken.
  • Marinate for 20 minutes, turning once after 10 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from marinade and drain well in colander, discarding marinade.
  • STIR-FRYING: In a hot wok or frying pan, heat the oil on high, adding half the chicken to the hot pan.
  • Stir fry about 2 minutes until chicken browns.
  • With slotted spoon, remove chicken from hot pan and set aside.
  • Repeat with remaining chicken.
  • ***If you are using (optional) spring onions, stir-fry them now for about 1 minute.
  • In hot pan, stir fry chili peppers for 10 seconds, adding a little more oil if needed.
  • FINISHING WITH SAUCE: Add sauce ingredients to hot pan and stir fry about 2-3 minutes, or until sauce is thickened.
  • Add chicken just to heat it (if using, add cooked green onions now) and toss with sauce.
  • Serve over hot white rice or fried rice.
