Garlic Chicken

This is one of my favorite Chinese gravies and its wonderful served with some fried rice or noodles.
The actual recipe calls for deep frying the chicken. But as an healthier alternative I pan roasted one big chicken breast and cut it into chunks. This simplified the dish so much more and it tasted just as great. Hope you like it...

1 big chicken breast, poached and cut into 1"chunks
1 capsicum, cut into 1"strips
3 spring onions, whites and greens, separated, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped
1/2tbs soy sauce
1tsp red chilli paste
1/2tsp white pepper powder
1 cup water
1tbs cornflour dissolved in 1tbs water 
salt to taste

Heat 1-2tbs oil and saute garlic and chillies for 30seconds. Add the spring onions and capsicum and sautee for 1 min on high. Add the chicken and fry for 2-3 mins.
Add the water and seasonings and boil for few mins. Check the salt. Add cornflour paste and cook for 1-2 mins till thick. 

Garnish with spring onion greens and serve hot with fried rice or nood
