Deseed the peppers and cut into strips. I like to use a mixture of red and yellow – but use whichever color you prefer. Cut the chicken into strips – breast or tenders would work well.

Heat some oil in a large skillet and add the chicken. Sauté until the chicken is just cooked through. Add the peppers, continue to cook for a few minutes, then add the sauce. Keep cooking until the sauce starts to thicken.

I like this recipe, but I do not drink soda. At all. Regular or diet. So, what would you use to replace the ginger ale?
