COOKING - - - - - - - -

Set saucepan or wok on high heat and bring temperature to point that a drop of water will bead up and bounce around in the bottom of the pan.

Add cooking oil to pan and sear chicken.

Add garlic and ginger, turning to mix thoroughly with chicken.

Add all vegetables and turn to mix with chicken. Cover pan and allow to remain over high heat for 3 minutes, uncovering once to turn ingredients about half-way through.

Uncover pan and stir in the liquid ingredients other than the flour water. Reduce heat to medium and cook covered for about 15 minutes, completely turning the ingredients a couple of times.

Add flour-water to pan and stir to distribute throughout ingredients. Raise heat to medium-high and stir ingredients until sauce thickens to desired consistency (take care to stir and turn ingredients from bottom of pan to avoid scorching the sauce).
