1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the stems and leaves. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice lengthwise. Halve the snow peas crosswise. Peel and medium dice the orange. In a bowl, combine the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

2 Cook the chicken:

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.
