    Grace Lynn's Note:

    This is a traditional Taiwanese dish that we always order in our favorite Chinese restaurant. I begged the chef for this recipe and he very reluctantly gave it to me! I just made it for dinner tonight and couldn't wait to post this to share it with all of you!

      Wow. Really good. I used all the correct ingredients, but I ended up marinating the chicken in the sauce for over a day. Then as I was cooking the chicken, I added the first garlic portion to it. It came out really good. Next time I think I will do the sauteeing of the garlic, etc., and then make the sauce and marinate the whole thing together. Thanks for posting a great recipe.

      very good & easy. Next time I will simmer the chicken for 15 minutes instead of 30. Our chicken was a little tough, but the flavor was great. Thank you for posting.

      It's so good and garlicy! Make sure you have good ventilation when cooking this dish. Can't go wrong with it. Adjustment made: Marinatedd the chicken in the liquid mixture (soy sauce, wine, sugar) 1/2 hour before stir frying process. I suggest that you reduced sugar and soya sauce when cooking, as you might find it too sweet/salty vice versa. You can always taste the dish and add more sugar/soya sauce later. I used rice wine and moscato wine because I didn't have anough. I didn't use basil at all. Result... so tasty I have to eat it right away!
