When the aroma of ginger and saffron fully surface, sprinkle in sugar, let it caramelize before drizzling in the brandy, wait a little time here before tossing in onion, peppers, soy sauce and broth. Cover it up, cook from 3-4 minutes. Chicken should be cooked through, but vegetables should be firm and crisp, so it can be good and ready to reheat the next day if you plan to be on a diet. Note: I really do believe this dish tastes even better the next day and so does my family.
