800 g (1 lb 10 oz) chicken thigh fillets, cut into 2 cm (1 in) slices
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 medium-sized white onion, sliced
3 spring onions (scallions), trimmed and cut into 10 cm (4 in) lengths
2 tablespoons shao hsing wine or dry sherry
1/4 cup Light Chinese Chicken Stock (page 21)
1/4 cup spring onion (scallion) julienne
1 large red chilli, cut in half lengthways, seeds removed and finely sliced

2 tablespoons shao hsing wine or dry sherry
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons oyster sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon finely grated ginger

Combine chicken with marinade ingredients in a large bowl, cover, and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a hot wok until surface seems to shimmer slightly. Add half the marinated chicken and stir-fry for 1 minute. Remove from wok with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add remaining chicken and stir-fry for 1 minute then remove from wok and set aside.

Add remaining oil to the hot wok, add onion and spring onions and stir-fry for 1 minute. Toss in reserved chicken and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Pour in wine or sherry and stir-fry for a further 30 seconds. Lastly, pour in stock and stir-fry for 30 seconds.

Arrange chicken on a platter and garnish with spring onion julienne and chilli.
