4 teaspoons cornstarch, divided
6 teaspoons reduced sodium soy sauce, divided
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon rice wine
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into 2 x   1/2–inch-thick pieces)
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons chile paste
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon canola oil, divided
1 cup onion, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup green bell pepper, diced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup red bell pepper, diced into 1/2 inch pieces

Combine 2 teaspoons cornstarch, 2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce, and next 5 ingredients (through garlic) in a medium bowl. Add chicken; stir well to coat. Set aside.

Combine chicken broth, remaining 2 teaspoons cornstarch, brown sugar, remaining 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, chile paste, and sesame oil.

Heat 1/2 teaspoon canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add carrots, diced onion, bell peppers, and green onions to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Transfer to a bowl.
