Ingredients:  
1 T cornstarch
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
Ground black pepper, to taste
1 lb trimmed boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into bite-sized cubes
1 T toasted sesame oil
1 cup 1/2"-wide strips onion (about 1" long)
1 cup 1/2"-wide strips green bell pepper (about 1" long)
2 T freshly minced garlic
1/4 cup bottled sweet & sour sauce (recommend La Choy)

Directions:
Directions:
Large Bowl: combine cornstarch, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Mix well. Add chicken and toss until chicken pieces are thoroughly coated.

Wok or skillet- high heat. When hot add 1 tsp sesame oil, pepper, onion, & garlic. Cook, stirring until the garlic softens and the vegetables are crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Don't overcook cause garlic may burn. Transfer veggies to bowl and cover to keep warm.

Return pan to high heat and add remaining oil and chicken. Cook until pieces are lightly browned on the bottom. Flip pieces and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear, 4 to 6 minutes. Add veggies to pan to reheat if necessary. Transfer to bowl and add the sauce, mix until well combined. (Don't add sauce to hot pan because it will cook and get stuck pan instead of chicken!)
