 1. Place a deep sauté pan over moderate heat.
Add the oil and, once hot, add the chicken.
Sauté the chicken until no longer pink, about
5 minutes.
2. Add the peppers, onion, and celery. Stir to
combine and continue to sauté for 3 to 4 minutes
more. Sprinkle the spice blend over the
mixture and sauté for 1 minute.
3. Reduce the heat to low and add the tomatoes
and chili sauce; simmer for 15 additional
minutes. If mixture seems too thick, thin out
with vegetable stock or water.
