Season the chicken well, turn up the heat and cook for 5-10 minutes or until well browned. Scoop out onto a plate. Cook the celery, red chillies and green and red peppers for 5 minutes or until softening and browning at the edges. Add the garlic, ginger, peppercorns and spring onions, and cook for 1 minute.
Mix together the cornflour, shaoxing rice wine and soy sauce to form a paste, then gradually add 200ml of water while stirring, followed by the sugar.
