Chinese Garlic Chicken


1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry sherry

4 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 green onions, finely chopped on the diagonal
a few drops sesame oil
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry sherry
1/4 teaspoon chili paste

Oil for for stir-frying


Cut the chicken into bite-sized cubes. Place in a bowl, mix in the marinade
ingredients and marinate for an hour. While the chicken is marinating,
prepare the green onions and garlic. Combine the sesame oil, light soy
sauce, sherry and chili paste in a bowl and set aside.
Heat wok and add oil. When oil is ready, add the marinated chicken.
Stir-fry briefly on high heat, then add the garlic and green onion. Add the
remaining ingredients and combine (total cooking time should be about 5
minutes). Serve hot with rice.

Cook's Notes: This is a recipe that I make at home as a main dish, so the

ratio of meat is higher than most Chinese recipes. Sometimes I will even use
one pound of chicken breasts, adjusting the seasonings slightly and
stir-frying the chicken in two batches so as not to overcrowd the wok. I
like to serve this dish with stir-fried baby corn and rice, and perhaps a bit
of green onion and fresh tomatoes for garnish

~Enjoy !~
