Reduce heat and let simmer until it starts to thicken and looks like a preserve, about 15 minutes.
When hot, add sliced onion and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring often.
Add red bell pepper and continue to cook until beginning to caramelize, about 4-6 minutes. Remove onion & pepper from skillet.
Cook stirring constantly until chicken is cooked through and brown on the outside. About 3-4 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium low and add plum sauce and water. Toss to coat all vegetables and meat and simmer for 1 minute. Just enough to warm snow peas slightly.
A Chinese cooking method where ingredients, both vegetables and/or meat, are fried quickly in a hot oil.
You need a high smoke point oil so stick with vegetable, soybean, peanut or canola oil.
Stir Frys are super adaptable. You can make them with chicken, beef, pork and even go vegetarian with tofu. For vegetables, you can pretty much add any of your favorites. The denser vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans and bell peppers get added first since they need longer to cook. Towards the end of cooking, add the more tender vegetables such as snap peas, onions, celery, baby corn, snow peas, mushrooms, zucchini and bok choy.
Pro Tip: Always have all your ingredients prepped before starting to cook. Have your meat sliced, vegetables chopped and all the liquids measured and ready to go. It's one of the fastest cooking dishes once started.
