Was pretty good. Might add some chili oil next time for more zing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. In a nonreactive bowl, prepare the Marinade: Combine the rice wine, peanut oil, soy sauce, salt and cornstarch. Stir in the chicken pieces and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. 2. In a small bowl, stir together the ingredients for the Sauce. Set aside.
  3. 3. Over high heat, in a wok, bring the peanut oil to almost smoking temperature. Stir-fry the chilies, ginger, garlic and white part of the green onions for 30 to 40 seconds, or until the chilies turn dark. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes, until golden in color.
  4. 4. Add the sauce and bring to a boil. Add the peanuts. Stir in the slurry and continue stirring until the sauce is glossy and thick enough to coat the chicken. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with julienned green onions.
