Chicken Pepper Stir-Fry Recipe

I challenged myself one day to create a sweet and spicy stir-fry using only the ingredients I had on hand. It had to be sweet yet tangy for our liking. I think I have finally mastered this dish.—Kelly Baumgardt, Seymour, Wisconsin

"A hit with my family! I've made it twice and on the second time, I didn't add as much brown sugar so I added a drained can of pineapple chunks. WOW!! Delish"

"Great recipe. The only variation I did was kick it up a notch. Instead of cooking the chicken in oil, I use a szechuan stir fry sauce. Very tasty, if you like it spicy."
