- Put the raw chicken on the griddle and start cooking.
- Put the onions on the other half of the griddle. Once the onions are starting to get tender, add the remaining ingredients (4-garlic cloves, onion, sugar, fennel, crushed red pepper, and salt) and sautÃ© 1 minute. Cook until the onions are tender, stirring frequently. Add red bell peppers and sautÃ© for another five minutes. Stir in vinegar and black pepper.
