Directions

1. Combine the oyster sauce, salt, pepper, sugar, water and starch to a small cup and whisk to combine. Set aside.

2. Warm the oil in a wok or skillet on a high heat. Add the chicken and cook quickly for a minute or two until it's no longer pink. Transfer the chicken to a small plate and set aside.

4. Add the chicken back to the wok along with the green onions. Stir fry a minute to finish cooking the chicken.
