Heat a frying pan or wok over high heat until a bead of water instantly sizzles.

Leaving as much oil as possible from the chicken, turn the heat to medium then add the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil and let it heat up.

Pair the chicken and sauce with whatever side you like or eat it alone. Steamed rice is my favorite side of choice! Happy cooking!
