1 1/2 sesame oil

Instructions- 30 minutes cook time
In a medium-size container, mix your chicken thighs with the avocado oil and ensure it is evenly coated. Continue by adding salt, pepper and flour and coat them evenly.
Heat a large pan or large wok on medium-high for about 3 mins. Add 1 tbsp of avocado oil and let it heat up for another minute or so.
Continue by adding your chicken and evenly spread it to ensure it all cooks evenly.
Seal the chicken for about 3 minutes on each side until it turns a golden color and crisps up. Once done, remove the chicken from the pan and set it aside.
Add your onions to the pan with a pinch of salt and cook for a few minutes so it does not get burned. Proceed by adding your bell peppers, broccoli, carrots, and sugar snap peas.
Tip: Continue cooking and stirring occasionally to soften the veggies and not burn them.
Recommendation: You can expedite the process of cooking the vegetables by covering your pan and letting them cook slowly. Just don’t forget to stir them occasionally.
Add your garlic, ginger and apple cider vinegar to your veggie mixture and reduce the heat to low and cover. Let this cook for about 5 minutes while stirring occasionally.
Put your chicken back in the pan with your vegetables along with the sesame oil and red chili pepper flakes.
Continue stirring to bring all these flavors together for the final 2 minutes of cooking. Now, do a quick test of salt, pepper and adjust accordingly.
