To get started, you need a good thermos. Look for one that will retain heat for at least 5 hours. Pre-heating the thermos prior to adding ingredients is a very important first step. To pre-heat: place boiling water into thermos and let stand for 5-10 minutes.
Mix chicken patty mix with 3 Tbs water and 1 tsp vegetable oil.
In a saucepan, warm the remaining 2 tsp cooking oil over medium high heat. Once the oil is simmering, sauté chicken patty mix, carrots, red pepper and garlic.
Add all ingredients to the pre-heated Thermos and stir before replacing the lid. Let cook at least an hour. Will stay hot as long as indicated on Thermos label.
When ready to eat, add sauce to rice bowl, stir and enjoy.
