1/2 red bell peppers

1/2 green bell peppers

1/2 carrots

1/2 onions

2 celery stalks

10 baby corns

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp garlic

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp sugar

1 tsp light soy sauce

1 tsp oyster sauce

1 tsp cooking wine

1/2 tbsp chicken powder

1 tsp cornstarch

2 tbsp water

1 tbsp cooking wine

1/2 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp oyster sauce

2 tbsp water

1/2 tbsp cornstarch

3 tbsp water

3 tbsp oil, for cooking chicken

1 1/2 tbsp oil, for cooking vegetables


Step 1 - Prepare chicken & marinade

In a mixing bowl, mix together salt (0.50 tsp), sugar (0.50 tsp), light soy sauce (1 tsp), oyster sauce (1 tsp), cooking wine (1 tsp), chicken powder (0.50 tbsp), cornstarch (1 tsp), and water (2 tbsp). Cut your chicken (10 oz) into thin slices with diagonal cuts and add it to the bowl. Marinate the chicken by repeatedly mixing it around, gathering it into a clump, and squeezing hard for 2-3 minutes.

Step 2 - Prepare vegetables

Cut red bell pepper (0.50 ), green bell pepper (0.50 ), carrot (0.50 ), onion (0.50 ), celery stalks (2 ) into strips. Add baby corn (10 ) to the collection, and chop thin slices of ginger (1 tsp) and mince garlic (1 tsp).

Step 3 - Heat stove, create another cornstarch mix

Set the stove to high heat. In a small mixing bowl or cup, mix cornstarch (0.50 tbsp) and water (3 tbsp).

Step 4 - Partially cook chicken

Once the wok is hot, add oil (3 tbsp), and half of the ginger and garlic you prepared previously. Let the ginger and garlic cook for about 1 minute, releasing their aromas. Throw the chicken into the wok. Stir and flip the chicken periodically until the pieces turn white. Remove the chicken from wok when done.

Step 5 - Cook vegetables

Before cooking the vegetables, add oil (1.5 tbsp) (less than we used for the chicken), and the remainder of the ginger and garlic into the wok. Let this heat up and cook for about a minute. Then, add the rainbow of vegetables into the wok, stirring and tossing constantly.

Step 6 - Add flavors

After stirring the vegetables for about a minute or two, add cooking wine (1 tbsp), sugar (0.50 tsp), salt (0.50 tsp), and oyster sauce (1 tbsp) into the wok. Continue stirring.

Step 7 - Add chicken & water before covering wok

Add the chicken back into the wok, along with a bit of water (2 tbsp) to help generate some steam for the ingredients to cook. Cover the wok for about 2-3 minutes, until boiling.

Step 8 - Add final cornstarch mix

Pour the cornstarch mix (cornstarch (0.50 tbsp) & water (3 tbsp)) from earlier into the wok. Stir the wok around several times.

Step 9 - Serve immediately

Transfer the rainbow chicken stir fry into your favorite plate or bowl.
