In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken all over. Remove to plate. Drain off fat in pan; reduce heat to medium. Fry onion, garlic and red pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 4 minutes.

In small bowl, whisk together stock, ketchup, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, salt and pepper; add to pan. Return chicken and any juices to pan and bring to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 6 minutes.

In small bowl, whisk cornstarch with 1/4 cup (50 mL) water; add to pan and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with green onion.
