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.
