    Cook the Chicken

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Pat diced chicken dry, and season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Gently combine chicken and cornstarch in a mixing bowl until chicken is completely coated. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 Tbsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan. Flip occasionally until browned, crispy and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 6-8 minutes. Remove chicken to towel-lined plate. While chicken cooks, cook vegetables.
