Decant ½ cup of gluten free teriyaki sauce into a large bowl and top it with ⅓ cups of freshly squeezed orange juice. Mix up the two ingredients.
Now top the teriyaki-orange mixture with ⅓ teaspoon of red pepper, and ⅓ teaspoon of minced ginger.
Pour 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil into a large frying pan or wok and place it stove, setting the temperature at a medium level.
Once the vegetable oil is warm, place 1 lb of bit-sized boneless chicken breasts’ pieces in it and stir fry.
Continue stir frying for at least 5 minutes or until the chicken pieces change in colour and are no longer pink.
Add in the chopped yellow pepper, green pepper, and red pepper.
Use a wooden ladle to continue stir frying and cooking for another 2 to 3 minutes until the vegetable and chicken pieces are tender.
Reduce the stove’s heat to low range and let the mixture simmer for few minutes.
Meanwhile, take a small bowl and stir mix 1 tablespoon of corn starch and 1 tablespoon of water until forming a smooth and rich paste.
Now drizzle this corn mixture over the previously mixed orange-ginger-teriyaki and use a spoon to mix and coat the ingredients.
Pour the mixture over the vegetable-chicken mixture in the frying pan or wok and continue to stir cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until the sauce is velvety but smooth.
