Question for the chef - the 'red peppers' in the dressing, are they 'sweet' ot 'bell' peppers or are they the hot 'chilli' peppers?

Really good! The chicken was so tender and juicy. I added a bit of water chestnuts and bamboo shoots I had leftover from Chinese Hot and Sour Soup #198 and added them in too. I also drizzled just a touch of sesame oil and soy sauce over the mixture. It was delicious! Thanks for posting.

Wow - you got yourself a great adopted recipe, here, UKChef86! I really, really enjoyed the difference in textures and flavors between the chicken and the dressing. Although I don't usually like sweet flavors in savory dishes and I was tempted to skip the sugar in the dressing, I decided not to - and I was glad I didn't! It's perfect. :)
