Sweet Chili Chicken

I loved the Sweet Chili Sauce so much that I knew it would taste delicious over chicken.  I decided to make it like a spicy,sweet and savory stir fry chicken dish.  I served this over rice for my husband and kids and they loved it  Since I am doing a lower carb diet these days I made a simple green salad and ate the chicken over salad.  This used up some of my treasured homemade chili sauce... I guess I will have to keep making the sauce so I can eat this chicken often.

2lbs of boneless chicken breast cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup up to 3/4 cup My sweet chili sauce recipe  
1/4 cup soy sauce (to taste)
2 Tbs sesame seeds 
2 bunches green onions sliced (leave some green tops for garnish)
1 bell pepper any color sliced
1 medium onion sliced

Add 1Tbs canola oil then saute onion, bell pepper and green onions.  Remove onion/pepper mixture from pan until later.   Then heat 2 Tbs canola oil and brown chicken with a little salt and black pepper.
Lower heat to medium low and add chili sauce and soy sauce to pay.  Cook for 3-5 minutes to allow chicken to absorb some of the chili sauce flavors.  Then sprinkle with sesame seeds. 

Add the cooked pepper/onion mixture to the chicken.   Toss well and taste for seasoning.  Serve over rice, noodles or salad. Enjoy.    Note: I also steamed some snow peas to enjoy with the meal.
