Add dissolved cornstarch and stir until thickened. Keep warm. Heat ½ in of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry chicken until golden brown on both sides. Drain, then cut into ¾ inch wide strips. Set aside and keep warm. Wipe out skillet, add small amount of oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and stir fry until crisp-tender.
