Taste the sauce and add your choice of sweetener to your liking.

STEP 5

Rinse the skillet clean.

STEP 6

Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

STEP 7

Add the corn starch and massage the chicken with your hands.

If using fresh broccoli or green beans, boil the broccoli for 3-5 minutes until soft enough to pierce with a fork yet firm.

STEP 9

Transfer the vegetables to a plate lined with a paper towel.

STEP 10

Wipe down the skillet until dry.

STEP 11

Heat approximately 1 tablespoon of oil in the skillet on medium-high heat.

Cook the onion and chicken until the chicken is cooked through, approximately 3-4 minutes.

STEP 13

Add the remaining vegetables and stir-fry them together for 2 minutes.

STEP 14

Slowly add a few tablespoons of sauce while stirring the vegetables and chicken.

STEP 15

Continue to add the sauce a few tablespoons at a time, allowing about 15 seconds between each addition to allow sauce to slightly cook down.
