  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon yellow bean sauce (soy bean paste)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon dark soy sauce
Stir-Fry:

  • 1 clove garlic, peeled, left whole and crushed

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the chicken: In a large bowl, sprinkle the chicken with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the cornstarch and mix well.

For the sweet sauce: In another bowl, add the stock, chili sauce, ketchup, light soy sauce, rice vinegar, yellow bean sauce, honey and dark soy sauce together and set aside.

For the stir-fry: Heat a wok over high heat and when the wok starts to smoke, add the vegetable oil. Add the garlic and chicken pieces and let the chicken settle in the wok for 1 minute before stir-frying for another 2 minutes. As the chicken starts to turn opaque, add the rice wine and dried chilies and fry for a few seconds. Then add the sweet sauce mixture and cook for another 3 minutes. Cook the chicken in the sauce until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has reduced, is slightly sticky and has a thicker consistency, another 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the scallions and peanuts and cook for less than 1 minute. Toss in the noodles and then transfer to a serving plate.
