Preparation Time: 15 Minutes,
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes,

Ingredients:

  • 1 packet of Zorabian Chicken Mince (450g)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup red or green pepper, finely diced

  • 2 teaspoons sweet chili sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  3. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the chicken is browned and the onions are transparent.
  4. When the peppers are starting to go tender, add the water chestnuts and peppers and simmer for about five minutes.
  5. Once the chicken and vegetables are well covered and heated through, add the sauce and simmer over low heat.
  6. Serve over rice or noodles, on lettuce leaves, or over your favorite Asian salad!
