      Chinese Garlic Chicken

      Ingredients:

      1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

      Marinade:
      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

      Directions:

      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 !~
