A simple, quick recipe for Szechuan-style chicken with basic ingredients. This is usually served over white rice.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 3 green onions, sliced diagonally into 1/2 inch pieces
