1. In a wok on a medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil. Add chicken and stir-fry in batches, for 6-7 minutes, or until browned. Set aside.

2. Heat remaining oil in the wok on a medium heat. Add garlic, onion, capsicum and carrot and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until onion is soft. Return chicken to the wok and add hoisin, soy and sesame oil. Stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
