  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  1. In a medium sized bowl, add the Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, chili powder, garlic and hot sauce.
    Add the chicken strips to the sauce and lightly mix together to coat.
    Cover and let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes (or refrigerate for a few hours).

    Once the oil is hot, add the chicken strip mixture to the pan and saute for 5-6 minutes.
    Add the onion and green pepper, season with salt and pepper and continue to saute for another 3-4 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
