When the pan is heated, add the chicken pieces that have been marinated in a single layer. This will allow the chicken pieces to sear without crowding the pan. Ensure that each side is fried for two to three minutes until it is golden brown and cooked through. Put the chicken in a separate bowl after removing it from the skillet.

While the aromatics are being sautéed, add the remaining tablespoon of vegetable oil to the same skillet. The sliced onion should be added and sautéed for two to three minutes, until it becomes translucent and tender. Cook for an additional thirty seconds after stirring in the minced garlic until the aroma is released. Once the onions and garlic have been thoroughly combined, add the sliced red and green bell peppers to the skillet.

While stirring continually, incorporate the peppers into the mixture. The peppers should be cooked for an additional two to three minutes, or until they have become somewhat softer but are still crisp. Bringing everything together: Bring the chicken pieces that have been cooked back into the skillet, along with any fluids that have gathered by this point.

To ensure that the chicken and vegetables are equally covered, pour the sauce that has been created over them and mix everything together. Simmer the sauce for one to two minutes, or until it has reached the desired consistency of slightly thickening and coating the chicken and vegetables wonderfully. As a final touch, sprinkle chopped green onions over the chicken that has been seasoned with black pepper.
