Chinese Jalepeno Chicken

I had some of this at a little place in China Town when I was in New York. So I looked up a recipe and tried it. It was pretty close. So here it is:

8 chicken thighs, boneless/skinless, cut into thin pieces
1 onion, finely sliced
1 green pepper, cut into pieces
1-2 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced (to taste)
2 garlic cloves, grated or finely minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, you can use fresh grated
pinch of sugar, to taste
salt & pepper to taste
1 cup chicken stock (or vegetable stock)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2-3 tablespoons Chinese fermented black bean sauce
2 tablespoons peanut oil (or any oil)

Heat the oil in a wok or a large deep frying pan. Add the chicken, onion, peppers, chilli, garlic, and ginger. Fry for about 5 minutes on high heat. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and continue cooking about 10-15 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated and the chicken has cooked through. Serve with rice or Chinese noodles.
