Place a tbsp of oil in a Wok and heat to 400F. Add onions, peppers (reusing them at this point), stir fry about 30 seconds. Stir in sauce mixture, and then add to wok. Cook until thick. If it gets to thick, add water to right consistency. Add chicken to sauce in wok and cook until hot and bubbly. Serve with fried rice or steamed rice.
