Ingredients

1/3 cup white vinegar 85 mL
1/3 cup sugar 70 g
1/3 cup water 85 mL
4 tsp soy sauce, low-sodium 20 mL
4 tsp oyster sauce 26 g
3/4 dried chili peppers, minced 0.4 g
1/2 tsp sesame seed oil 2.5 mL
4 tsp cornstarch 10 g
1/4 cup canola oil 65 mL
2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut into 2 cm cubes 600 g
1/2 yellow or red sweet peppers, cut into 1 cm-wide strips 100 g
1/2 green peppers, cut into 1 cm-wide strips 80 g
1/4 onions, cut into 1 cm-thick wedges 50 g
1 green onions/scallions, thinly sliced
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. In a small saucepan, bring to a boil the vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, chili pepper, and all the water but 2 tablespoons. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with the remaining water. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the saucepan, mix well and let simmer for 1 min. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. Heat half of the canola oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Sauté the chicken pieces in batches, so as not to overcrowd the pan. Cook until the chicken has lost its pink colour, about 5-7 min. Transfer the chicken to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Pour the remaining oil in the pan, then add the onion and peppers. Cook over medium-high heat, tossing often, until they begin to brown and soften, about 5 min. Add the chicken and reserved sauce to the pan. Mix well and sauté until well cooked. Adjust the seasoning, garnish with green onions then serve.
