  1. To begin, heat the oil in a large wok or non-stick saucepan and brown the chicken (in batches if required) over high heat, turning the chicken after a minute so it evenly colours on both sides. Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and set it aside. Heat the same oil and toss the green peppers for 10 seconds. Drain with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  2. Add the red chillies, green chillies and ginger to the pan stir-fry for 2–3 minutes. Add the onions and toss well for 1 min. Add the dark and light soy sauces and mix well. Add stock and.d bring the mixture to a boil. Dissolve the cornflour in 1 ½ tbsp of cold water and mix well.

  3. Once the stock begins to boil, add the cornflour paste, stirring vigorously to avoid any lumps. Add the tossed green peppers, browned chicken and spring onions and cook for a further 2–3 minutes over high heat.

  4. Add the salt as required, drizzle over some sesame oil and serve hot with vegetable or egg-fried rice
