Add about 2 tablespoons cooking oil to a skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Season chicken with light salt and more aggressively pepper, cook 8-9 minutes, turning occasionally, remove. Add peppers and stir 2-3 minutes but let them remain tender-crisp. Add scallions and toss 1 minute more, remove from heat.
