  • 1 tablespoon peeled and grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons Shaohsing rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed dried red Sichuan chiles or chile flakes, more if desired
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and sliced very thinly on an angle
  • 2 small bok choy, cut in half, core removed, white part sliced and leaves left whole
  • 8 ounces shiitake or assorted wild mushrooms, sliced

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

In a medium bowl, sprinkle the chicken with salt, ground white pepper and the oyster sauce. Add 2 tablespoons cornstarch, toss to coat and set aside.

Heat a wok over high heat and add the vegetable oil. Throw in the garlic and ginger and stir-fry for less than 1 minute. Add the chicken breast and stir-fry until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. As the chicken begins to brown, add the rice wine. Sprinkle with the crushed dried red chiles and Chinese five-spice powder. Add the carrots, white parts of the bok choy and shiitake mushrooms and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the water chestnuts, bok choy leaves, chicken stock, dark soy and light soy sauces and bring to a boil. Stir well and allow the sauce to thicken for a minute. Garnish with the chopped scallions and serve immediately.
