1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
Ground Black Pepper, To Taste
1 Pound Trimmed Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast, Cut Into Bite-sized Cubes
1 Tablespoon Toasted Sesame Oil
1 Cup 1/2" Wide Strips Onion (about 1" long)
1 Cup 1/2" Wide Strips Green Bell Pepper (about 1" long)
2 Tablespoons Freshly Minced Garlic
1/4 Cup Bottled Sweet & Sour Stir-fry Sauce (I used La Choy)
Place a large nonstick skillet or nonstick wok over high heat. When hot, add 1 teaspoon sesame oil, onion, green pepper, and garlic. Cook, stirring, until the garlic softens and the vegetables are crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Be careful not to overcook or the garlic may burn. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl and cover to keep warm.
Return the pan to high heat and add another teaspoon oil and half the chicken in a single layer. Cook until the pieces are lightly brown on the bottom. Flip the pieces and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear, 4 to 6 minutes. Add the cooked chicken the the bowl with the vegetables. Return the pan to high heat, add the remaining oil and cook the remaining chicken.
Return the vegetables and chicken to the pan to reheat if needed. Transfer to a medium bowl, add the sauce, and mix until well combined. Divide the stir-fry among 4 bowls, and serve.
