Make the marinade by mixing together the sugar, salt, soy sauce and cornflour slurry. Mix in the chicken, let marinate for 15 minutes.
Heat a large frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Stir-fry the chicken until evenly brown on both sides, 3-4 minutes. Set aside.
Heat the same frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Stir-fry the onion and salt until soft, 3-4 minutes. Add the peppers and stir to mix. Set aside.
Place the vermicelli in the same pan, add onions, peppers, mushrooms and chicken. Pour over the chicken marinade and water and heat through over high heat, about 2-3 minutes. Adjust the seasoning accordingly and serve hot.
