  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Green onions, chopped (for garnish)

  1. In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, and cornstarch until well combined. Add the chicken pieces and toss to coat. Let marinate for at least 15 minutes.

I love that it's packed with flavor from the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and hoisin sauce. Plus, using boneless, skinless chicken makes it a healthier option. Can't wait to give this a try! Do you think it would work well with other vegetables too, like broccoli or snap peas? πŸ—
