How to Make Garlic Soya Chicken

  1. In a large bowl, toss chicken strips with toasted sesame oil and white pepper. Marinate for 10-15 minutes. Keep aside.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together rice vinegar, soy sauce, dark soy sauce, Chinese rice wine (if using), brown sugar and cornstarch. Set aside.
  3. Heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken pieces, spreading it out as much as possible.

Stir-fry over low heat for about 10-15 seconds, or until aromatic, taking care not to burn the garlic. Turn up the heat to high, add in snow peas and red onion, and stir-fry for another 30 seconds.
  6. Add in red bell pepper, and cook for one minute - making sure to stir and toss the ingredients well.
  7. When the vegetables are bright and almost crisp-tender, stir in the cooked chicken.
  8. Take the prepared sauce, give it a stir, and quickly pour it into the wok, cooking until the sauce thickens.
  9. 9.  Add in one or two tablespoon of water if needed, toss well, and cook for a further 30 seconds or the mixture is hot and bubbly.
