What You'll Need:
  • 1 scallion (green onion), thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
What To Do:
  1. In a medium bowl, combine scallion, soy sauce, sherry, cornstarch, ginger, sugar, and pepper; mix well. Add chicken chunks and toss to coat completely. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 3 hours.
     
  2. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade, and cook chicken in batches 8 to 10 minutes, or until crispy on all sides and no pink remains.
