Wash and dry all produce.* Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Peel, then finely grate 1 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl). Heat a medium pot over medium. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then rice, half the garlic, half the ginger and 1/4 tsp spice blend (dbl for 4 ppl). Toast, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce to medium-low. Cook, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
Meanwhile, thinly slice green onions. Core, then cut bell peppers into 1/4-inch slices. Thinly slice chili, removing seeds for less heat. (NOTE: Wear kitchen gloves when prepping chili, if desired.) On a clean cutting board, pat chicken dry with paper towel, then cut into 1/4-inch strips. Sprinkle chicken with remaining spice blend. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions and bell peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until bell peppers are tender crisp, 4-5 min. Transfer veggies to a plate and set aside. (TIP: Don't overcrowd pan; cook veggies in 2 batches for 4 ppl, using 1 tbsp oil for each batch!)
To the same pan, add another 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) then chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is golden and cooked through, 5-7 min (TIP: Cook to a min. internal temp. of 74°C/165°F, as size may vary.**) (TIP: Cook chicken in two batches for 4 ppl, using 1 tbsp oil for each batch!)
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 3/4 cup cold water (dbl for 4 ppl). Add soy sauce, remaining garlic, remaining ginger and 1/4 tsp chili (dbl for 4 ppl). (NOTE: Reference heat guide in Start Strong.) When chicken is done, add cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring often, until sauce is slightly thickened and chicken is coated, 1-2 min. Stir in veggies, until warmed through, 1 min.
Fluff rice with a fork and stir in half the green onions. Season with salt. Divide rice between plates. Top with chili-chicken and any sauce from the pan. Sprinkle over green onions and remaining chili, if desired.
