  • Mix remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, chicken breasts, and cornstarch together in a bowl.

  • Set a wok or large skillet over high heat and add oil. Add chicken, sugar snap peas, and red bell pepper. Cook, without stirring, for 1 minute. Stir or toss until chicken is lightly browned, about 4 minutes.

  • Whisk soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, garlic, sugar, and chili garlic sauce together in a bowl. Pour into the wok. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Divide rice among 4 plates. Top with chicken and sauce. Garnish with green onions.

Quick and Easy! Cooking moves fast with a wok so be sure to prep everything beforehand. The chili garlic sauce is essential since this is meant to be a spicy dish. Full of flavor and the veggies a nice sweetness to counter the salt in the sauce. Read More

I followed the recipe as written and it was delicious. We did add more chili garlic sauce to add more heat. When making in the future I would increase the sauce slightly to make more gravy when mixing with the rice. Read More

It was easy and delish. I used three chicken thighs de-boned and kept the sauce ingredients the same (I love sauce). Made two meals for one person. Read More
