Chinese Chicken with Vegetables

I love Chinese food, love love love it.

Thing is, it's not always cheap or convenient for me to go out and find some, so I try to make it at home, and though a lot of these dishes are good, I still don't think you can ever quite replicate it.

This is a super easy and simple recipe but my family loves it :)

Another recipe from the old cookbooks I have laying around.

Chinese Chicken with Vegetables

Chinese Chicken with Vegetables

1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 green bell peppers, cut into strips
2 carrots, thinly sliced
3 green onions, sliced

Combine brown sugar, cornstarch and ginger in a medium bowl; mix well. Stir in vinegar, soy sauce and water. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces.

Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add chicken; stir-fry for 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Add peppers, carrots and green onions; stir-fry until crisp, about 2 minutes.

Chinese Chicken with Vegetables

Add brown sugar mixture to skillet; stir. Cover; reduce heat. Cook, basting occasionally, until sauce is thickened, about 20 minutes. Spoon chicken and vegetables onto a serving platter.
