This is a delicious and easy to prepare recipe that delivers a chicken dish with a spicy brown sauce. Tips: Soy Sauce - Depending on the type of Soy sauce used, this dish can be very salty. Personally I use a low sodium brand most of the time even if it isn't 'Naturally brewed'. Some of the best I've used though has been the 'Dark' soy sauce purchased at grocery stores catering to Asian customers. I was surprised to find this thick dark soy to be less salty than your basic la choy or Kikkoman. Pepper flakes - You can add quite a bit as this recipe is for a milder palate. Sherry - Use Dry Sherry or even better Rice Wine. I've substituted many different things for this. Red Wine, White wine, Diluted Cider or Red Wine vinegar, apple juice. Each one adds an interesting flavor. Sauce to meat proportion - I tend to like Chinese dishes with sauce so that I can mix it with the rice on my plate. For a 'Saucier' turnout just keep the proportion of liquids to cornstarch. i.e. 1 part Cornstarch to 3 parts soy. Cooking - If you have anyone in the house with breathing problems you may want ventilation during the blackening of the pepper flakes. This produces a very pungent aroma and can set asthmatics coughing.
