Serving Size : 4

Preparation Time :0:30

Amount Measure Ingredient
4 large chicken breasts, no skin, no bone, sliced for stir fry
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 yellow bell pepper
1/2 large chopped onion
1 cup (240ml) water
1/2 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Cookable Sweetener, such as Cyclamate Sugar Twin, or Splenda
2 teaspoons minced garlic — to taste
2 teaspoons minced ginger — to taste
salt and pepper — to taste
1 tsp guar gum


Cut breasts into stir fry sized strips. Or buy them ready sliced.

De – seed and clean peppers. Remove all seeds , centre core and membrane.
Cut peppers in half and give them a quick push on a hard surface with the heel of your hand to flatten them.

Slice lengthways about 2″ 50mm wide. Then cut them into strips at a 45 degree angle. Chop onions and combine with peppers in a stainless steel bowl. Mix well.

Mix water, tomato puree, splenda and vinegar in a small stainless steel bowl. Whisk well until combined and splenda has dissolved.

Place some butter and oil in a frypan/Skittle. Sauté chicken in small batches until just brown. Remove to plate and keep warm.

Using the same pan add a little more oil if needed and sauté mixed vegetables until they just start to soften. I like the peppers crisp so I don’t cook them to much.

Turn up the heat and add the sauce. Cook for only long enough to bring the liquids to hot. Add chicken, garlic and ginger . Sir well. If you want a thicker sauce add corn flour or gum. Remove immediately and serve. A visually exciting dish with all the different colours.

Marg and I like to add a few bean shoots to the pan just a few moments before serving.

She’s a beauty mate . That’s OZ for very good.
