Cook the rice
While the rice cooks, prepare the rest of the meal.
Prep and brown the chicken
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick strips; season generously with salt and pepper.
While the chicken browns, start preparing the remaining ingredients.
Prep the remaining ingredients
- Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into 1-inch pieces.
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
- Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
Cook the vegetables; finish the stir-fry
Add the chicken and any accumulated juices and as much sambal oelek as you like. Stir in half the sesame stir-fry blend, adding more if desired. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Measure the water for the rice.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press).
- Measure the garlic and ginger.
- Garnish the dish with cilantro.
