Recipe Ingredients for Garlic Chicken

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Marinade:
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry wine

Other:
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 green onions, finely chopped on the diagonal
1/8 cup sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry wine
1/4 teaspoon chili paste
1/4 cup Oil for stir-frying

Recipe Directions for Garlic Chicken

  1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized cubes. Place in a bowl, mix in the marinade ingredients and marinate for about 20 - 25 minutes.

  2. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the garlic and green onions. Combine the sesame oil, light soy sauce, sherry and chili paste in a bowl and set aside.

  3. 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. Serves 4.

  4. Cook's Notes: I make Garlic Chicken at home as a main dish, so the ratio of meat is higher than many Chinese recipes. 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.
