    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    For the marinade

    For the Sauce

    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup rice wine (or dry sherry)
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 4 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons chili paste (sambal oelek; optional)
    • 1 tablespoon hot bean paste
    • 1/2 teaspoon hot fire oil (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
    • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix together ingredients for marinade and add to chicken; marinate chicken at least 30 min, up to an hour.
    2. 2
      Mix together ingredients for cooking sauce in a small bowl and set aside.
    3. 3
      Heat 1 tbsp sesame oil and 1 tbsp peanut oil, garlic, and red pepper in wok until you just start to smell them; add chicken and cook, stir-frying 3-4 minutes or until cooked through; remove from wok and set aside.
    4. 4
      Add the other 1 tbsp sesame oil and 1 tbsp peanut oil to wok and add snow peas, mushrooms, and bok choy; stir-fry 2-3 minutes or until bok-choy becomes crisp-tender.
    5. 5
      Add green onions, bamboo shoots, baby corn, and bean sprouts to the other veggies and stir-fry another minute or so.
    6. 6
      Add the chicken back to the wok and stir all together.
    7. 7
      Pour reserved cooking sauce over the stir-fry and cook, stirring until mixture is hot and thickened, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
    8. 8
      Serve with hot steamed rice.
    9. 9
      Just adding a note that the reason I don't use grated ginger in this recipe is because I wanted the dish to have a "subtle" ginger taste, and although I could have use a small amount of grated ginger, I felt that perhaps not as much in the dish would have been flavored by that- so in reference, I would use slices about the size of a large coin or American quarter coin.

      What else can I say except that this dish is in the same league as your General Tso's Chicken General Tso's Chicken (Tso Chung Gai). AGAIN I achieved the restaurant taste, so AGAIN the chance that my husband will take me out to a Chinese restaurant is getting smaller if I put dishes like this on the table. I cut up everything in advance, mixed the sauces and marinade, I even devided the oil for frying in two little bowls, so when it came to the cooking it was done in no time. Could noy find when the ginger should go in the wok and did that together with the garlic. Used all the hot spices except for the sambal oelek since it was the first time I was cooking this, for me the dish was hot enough but I think could have handled the heat If I would have added it. Did leave out the corn because I'm not keen on it but I made up that amount with the other vegetables. When finished cooking I noticed I forgot to add the green onions at step 5, mixed them in the last minute and will probably keep it like that for the next time. Thank you for another excellent recipe!

      This is absolutely delicious! I did make one change and that is to use sliced up steak instead of chicken. Just excellent!
