Ingredients
  • 2 chicken breast halves – slice into bite-size strips or cubes
  • 2 tablespoons of rice wine or extra dry sherry (not cooking sherry)
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt beaten with 1 egg white
  • 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoons dried chili flakes (optional)

  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 or 3 scallions (green onions), white and green part thinly

  3. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the the oil from the pan. Over medium heat stir fry garlic, ginger (and chili flakes if you are using them) for a moment until fragrant. Quickly add chicken to pan, stir gently to coat; add soy sauce, sugar and salt to taste. Stir to combine. Remove from pan and garnish with toasted sesame seeds and diagonally sliced scallions/green onions if desired. Serve hot, with steamed rice.
