1 large egg white
3 Tablespoons dry sherry
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 Pound boneless skinned chicken -- diced
1/2 Cup thinly sliced green onion
2 Tablespoons minced fresh ginger
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
1 Tablespoon tangerine zest
1 medium scotch bonnet peppers -- flaked ** (1 to 2)
1/2 Cup chicken stock
2 Tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/3 Cup oil

Preparation / Directions:

In a small bowl whisk egg white and 1 tablespoon each of the sherry and cornstarch. Pour over chicken and refrigerate at least 8 hours. In a bowl combine green onion, ginger, garlic, tangerine zest, and hot-pepper flakes and set aside. In another bowl combine the 1/2 cup stock, soy sauce, remaining sherry, vinegar, and sugar. Stir to dissolve and set aside. Preheat wok over high heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Swirl 3 tablespoons of the oil around wok, add chicken, and stir-fry until partially cooked (1-2 minutes). Remove and set aside. Make a paste of the remaining corn starch and chicken stock and set aside. Heat remaining oil in wok. Add onion-ginger-garlic mixture and stir-fry over medium-high heat until fragrant. Add chicken-stock mixture and simmer, stirring frequently, until heated through (about 2 minutes). Add chicken and cook until firm (about 4 minutes). Reduce heat to low. Mix in cornstarch mixture and stir until sauce is glossy. Serve immediately. **Scotch Bonnet Peppers: This unique pepper delivers an intense flavor and a slow building heat. The world renowned Jamaica Scotch Bonnet Pepper is very unique in the way it delivers heat. These peppers are of the same family as the Habenero peppers and are definitely up there on the Scoville heat scale, yet the flavor is fabulous. The pepper delivers a rich bouquet of flavors to your palate while building the heat level slowly - some folks claim it takes about 10 full seconds for the heat to fully kick in!!!
