In a wok or deep-sided, heavy-bottomed sauce pan, heat enough vegetable oil to deep fry the chicken. Deep fry the chicken until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from oil and drain on paper towel. Deep fry the peppers 10 seconds and remove. Heat the 2-3 tablespoons of oil in the wok. Add chicken, peppers, garlic and ginger.
