Divide chicken into small quantities and deep-fry at 350 degrees until crispy. Drain on a paper towel. Place a small amount of oil in wok and heat until wok is hot. Add scallions and peppers and stir-fry briefly. Stir sauce; add to wok. Place chicken in sauce and cook until sauce thickens. Add either cornstarch or water as needed. Serve with rice. Serves 6 - 8.
