  • Step 5 – Return the chicken to the skillet with the vegetables.
  • Step 6 – Pour the soy sauce mixture over the chicken and veggies. Allow it to simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  • Step 7 – Stir in the cornstarch mixture and continue to cook until the sauce has thickened.
  • Step 8 – Garnish with cut green onions, sesame seeds and enjoy. 

Recipe Tips 

  • Cut Chicken – Ensure that the chicken chunks are of uniform thickness for even cooking. If they’re too thick, they might take longer to cook. I like to cut into bite-size pieces about 1-inch cubes.
  • Cut Veggies – Prepare the vegetables ahead of time by cutting vegetables in about the size pieces. This make this recipe quick and easy by preparing vegetables.
  • Serving – This recipe is delicious served with noodles, white rice, and cauliflower rice.
