Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken thigh cut in bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 sweet red pepper cut in bite-size pieces
  • 1 sweet green pepper cut in bite-size pieces
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Thai-style sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced

Method

Sprinkle chicken with salt. In large skillet, heat oil over high heat; stir-fry chicken until starting to brown and juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 6 minutes.

Add garlic and ginger; stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add onion, red and green peppers and jalapeño pepper; stir-fry for 3 minutes, adding about 4 tbsp water by the tablespoon to prevent sticking to pan.

Mix chili sauce with vinegar; add to pan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until reduced and vegetables are tender-crisp. Serve sprinkled with green onions.
