Ingredients:

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Marinade:
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry sherry
4Garlic clove
, 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
stir frying


Directions:

Cut the chicken into bite-sized cubes. Place in a bowl, mix in the marinade ingredients and marinate for about 30 minutes. 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: I make garlic
Chicken at home as a main dish, so the ratio of meat is higher than many Chinese recipes. Sometimes I will even use 500 grams 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.
