FOR THE SALT AND PEPPER MIX:

INSTRUCTIONS

For the chicken:

First, add the chicken to a large bowl and season generously with salt and black pepper

Then, whisk egg in another bowl and pour into chicken, mixing well to coat well and drain excess.

Gradually sprinkle the starch mixture at the same time, until the chicken is well coated.

Add to the actives, spray on top with oil spray and let stand 30 minutes, until nice and golden (this may take a little less or longer).

For the vegetables:

Spray a skillet or wok over medium-high heat with spray oil.

Add onion and garlic and sauté 1 minute to soften.

Add the peppers and chili and gradually add a little broth at a time, continuing to stir as you do, until everything is absorbed.

Add the carrots, soy sauce and rice vinegar and heat until it evaporates.

For the salt and pepper mixture:

Combine the ingredients of the salt and pepper mixture in a bowl

When the chicken is cooked, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper mixture and relight the activry, continue with the salt and pepper mixture, until it is seasoned to your liking. I don't recommend adding everything at once as you may want less depending on your taste.

Once it is to your desired taste. Add the chicken to the pan / wok with the vegetables and mix everything together.

Sprinkle with chopped spring onion

Serve with your choice of side.

Happy Cooking Time.
