Thai Spicy Coriander Chicken

This is a quick and easy chicken breast stir fry using store bought Thai sweet chili sauce. Pairing this with tomato slices and a bit of tomato ketchup mellow the sauce slightly, bringing it close to sweet and sour sauce, but with a super spicy kick due to the use of the chili sauce and slices of serrano chilies. If you are serving this to children or if you just prefer a not too spicy sauce, omit the chilies, or at the very least, remove the seeds from the chilies.
