Fry garlic and ginger on medium-high heat until beginning to brown. Add green onion and let fry for half a minute.
Add chicken cubes and turn up the heat to high, stir-frying until opaque.
Turn heat back down to medium. Toss in peanuts and soybean paste, stirring to coat.
Sprinkle sugar over the mixture and stir for a minute or two longer.
Serve with rice.
*If your peanuts are not roasted, put them in an oven preheated at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Stir once before done. Take them out before completely roasted because they continue to cook once out of the oven.
