Slice chicken and then marinating with soy sauce, cooking wine and water starch. Set aside for around 15 minutes.
Heat your cook firstly, then around 2 tablespoons of cooking oil in a non-stick pan or wok. Place chicken in when the oil is warm but not hot. Let the chicken stay for 3-5 seconds and gently stir fry the chicken until the the chicken slices turns pale. Transfer out.
Leave some oil in and fry garlic until aromatic. Place sha cha sauce in and add water. Bring everything to a boiling and then place chicken, chili peppers and red onion. Simmer for 1 minute and serve with steamed rice.
- I love the chicken to be a little bit spicy. So you can spare red pepper or chose round red pepper.
- Crystal sugar added at end is for the color. This step is optional.
- Since Sha cha sauce contains some amount of salt, so do spare the salt added additionally.
