Brown ground chicken over medium high heat until completely cooked. Rinse cooked chicken in a colander with warm water to remove fat. When chicken is cool enough touch, mince chicken with fingers until well minced fine. Return chicken to pan and add the cooking sauce. Heat until bubbly and hot and excess liquid cooks down. When chicken mixture is warm and bubbly, add remaining ingredients except for the green onions. Cook for approximately 5 minutes until vegetables are cooked through.
