Have all ingredients chopped and ready to go. In a deep skillet or wok, heat 2 tablespoons oil over high heat. Add all vegetables and ginger. Chow (stir-fry) quickly until onion is cooked and translucent. Remove to bowl.
Add 2 tablespoons oil to wok; heat. Add chicken and chow until no longer pink on outside (5-7 minutes).

Great recipe! I tweaked it by putting a crispy coating on the chicken. Just marinate the chicken with 1 egg yolk, pinch of salt and about 3 tablespoons of cornstarch in a food storage bag for about 2-6 hours in the fridge. Then dredge the chicken pieces in a mixture of 1/2 cup cornstarch and 1/2 cup AP flour then fry in oil. Then I mixed the sweet and sour sauce and just poured it over the chicken before serving. This was way better than any take out!
