Chicken Ferocious

Makes 4 servings.


2 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch pieces
1½ cups distilled white vinegar
1 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
½ cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
2 tablespoons garlic powder, or to taste
1 tablespoon onion powder, or to taste
½ teaspoon ground ginger
1 (8 oz.) package button mushrooms, sliced
1 cup frozen green peas
3 green onions, chopped
3 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water


1. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over high heat. Add chicken pieces, and fry, stirring, until browned. Pour in the vinegar, soy sauce, and SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener; stirring until sweetener is dissolved. Season with red pepper flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, and ginger.
2. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Taste the sauce at this point and adjust seasoning to taste. The sauce should be very sweet. If it is too tart, add more SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener; if it is too sweet, add more vinegar.
3. Once the sauce is to your liking, add the mushrooms, peas, and green onions. Simmer gently over low heat for another 5 minutes, until the mushrooms shrink a bit.
4. Stir together the cornstarch and water, and stir it into the sauce.
5. Continue to simmer until it reaches the desired thickness.
