    2 tbsp soy sauce
    1 tbsp red wine vinegar
    2 tbsp water
    1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
    1 tsp dark sesame oil
    3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
    1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
    2 tsp granulated sugar or honey
    2 tbsp hot chili-garlic sauce
    Pam cooking spray
    1 red pepper, chopped
    2 green onions, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup peanuts or cashews, preferably untoasted and unsalted


Stir 1 tbsp soy, 1 tbsp water with 1 tbsp red wine vinegar, ginger and sesame oil in a medium bowl. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and add to soy mixture. Stir until well coated. Stir in cornstarch and set aside. Combine remaining soy and water with honey and chili-garlic sauce in a small bowl.
Heat non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add cooking spray, then marinated chicken. Stir-fry chicken until almost no pink remains, 3 to 5 min. Add pepper and cook until it starts to soften, about 2 min. Stir soy-vinegar mixture and pour over chicken and pepper. Add onions and cashews. Stir until cashews are heated through, 1 to 2 min. Remove from heat. Serve over steamed brown rice.
