  • 1 skinless chicken breast, sliced
  • 1/2 of one red bell pepper cut in 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/2 of one green bell pepper cut in 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/2 of one yellow bell pepper cut in 1/4-inch strips
  • 1/2 of one orange bell pepper cut in 1/4-inch strips
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 small onion sliced
  • 3 tbsp oil


  • 2 chicken stock cubes crushed
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp dry sherry or dry white wine


  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2-3 tbsp water


  • Heat oil over high heat in a large wok or skillet. Add chicken and garlic and stir fry until chicken is lightly browned on all sides.
  • Add onion and peppers, and stir fry until peppers are crisp-tender and have turned bright colored--I usually use the green pepper as a guide--when it turns bright green, that's generally when they are crisp-tender.
  • Add the sauce and heat to boiling.
  • Mix the cornstarch and water and add to the wok, stirring while adding. Bring to boil and boil for 1 minute.
  • Serve over rice (I use jasmine rice)
  • Serves 2
