Chicken and Peppers Stir Fry

Chinese cuisine is revered around the globe, and one of the most popular dishes served in restaurants is chicken stir-fry. This recipe is one I'll make over and over again because of how quick it is to prepare and because it is delicious! You can serve it with rice or noodles. I served it the Dominican way, with "White Rice" and “plátanos maduros”. This time  I did not use soy sauce, but instead I let the meat brown well and by letting a brown coat form in the bottom of pan, when I poured the broth  it quickly became dark amber in color. This  advice is for those who do not like soy sauce (Chinese sauce). Enjoy!

3 cups of hot chicken broth
2 teaspoons of garlic paste or to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
2 ½ tablespoons cornstarch + 3 tablespoons of cold water 

You could also add stir fried: broccoli mushrooms or carrots seasoned with pepper and garlic.
1. Season chicken with garlic and ground black pepper preferably let stand for 20 minutes. 
2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. 
3. Add the chicken and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
4. Add the chopped peppers and onions, and cook an additional 2 minutes.
5. Combine hot broth, soy sauce, soy sauce and ginger. Add to chicken mixture and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. 
6. Stir in dissolved cornstarch in 3 tablespoons of cool water, stir fry for 2-4 minutes until mixture starts to bubble and thickens. 

Serve over cooked white rice or noodles. 

a) If you prefer to add broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, stir fry them before you cook the meat, remove from wok or pan, begin with step 1 and add them later in step 4. 

b) If you do not have chicken broth at hand, you could bring to a boil one chicken bouillon with 3 ½ cups of water, and use this instead.
