I think you can find all of these ingredients in your average grocery store.
- 12 ounces skinless chicken breasts, boneless
- 1 tablespoon sherry wine, I use cream sherry for a slightly sweeter taste.
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 4 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
- 5 dashes hot pepper sauce, I find the best pepper sauce for this recipe is Cholula Hot Sauce imported
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 2 teaspoons gingerroot, minced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup green onion, cut in 1/2
- 1⁄2 cup peanuts
- 2 cups rice, hot, cooked
- Rinse chicken and pat dry.
- Cut into 3/4 inch pieces.
- In a medium bowl, stir together chicken, sherry and 1 teaspoon cornstarch.
- Let stand for 15 minutes.
- For sauce, in a small bowl, stir together water, soy sauce, 4 teaspoons cornstarch, sugar, vinegar and hot pepper sauce. Set aside. Pour cooking oil into a wok or large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Stir-fry garlic and ginger root for 15 seconds.
- Add chicken mixture; stir fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until meat is no longer pink inside. Push chicken from center of wok.
- Stir sauce and add to center of wok.
- Cook and stir until thick and bubbly.
- Add green onions and peanuts and stir to coat with sauce. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes more or until heated through.
- Serve over hot rice.
The recipe is great, but it doesn't make enough sauce. Also, you will need to add something else to give it a kick. I used crushed red pepper.
This recipe is very delicious and easy to make. I usually double the sauce, so I can have some for the rice. Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious. Used shrimp instead of chicken and put them in at the very end so they wouldn't overcook and get tough.
