  1. Place chicken in a bowl, add chilli paste, and salt and toss until chicken is well coated. Set aside.

  3. Remove to a plate and, return pan to stove, add 1 more teaspoon of the oil, and repeat with second batch.

  5. Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan, add broth and cook until sauce is slightly reduced, chicken is cooked through, and peppers are soft, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. Stir in oregano, taste, and adjust seasoning, as necessary.
