  1. For the marinade; place the chicken cubes into a glass bowl.

  2. In a bowl whisk together 1 tablespoons cornstarch with 2 tablespoons, then add in wine, soy sauce and sesame oil; pour over the chicken cubes and toss to coat.

  3. Cover and refrigerate for 35 minutes.

  4. For the sauce (I suggest to double all ingredients for 1 pound of chicken) in a small heavy saucepan combine 2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon white wine, 1-1/2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil and 3 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons cold water, hot chile paste, vinegar and 3 teaspoons brown sugar; mix until well blended.

  5. *NOTE* if you are doubling the sauce then still only use one can drained water chestnuts, 5 green onions only and increase the garlic only a small amount or keep to the same amount.

  6. To the sauce add in green onions, minced garlic, water chestnuts and peanuts; heat the sauce over very low heat stirring until thickened (about 5-8 minutes).

  7. Meanwhile remove the chicken from the marinade then saute in a large skillet or wok until the chicken is cooked through.

  8. Add the cooked sauce to the chicken and simmer stirring with a wooden spoon until thickened (if the sauce is too thick then add in a small amount of water to thin).

  9. Serve over cooked rice and garnish with a small amount of finely chopped green onion or chopped peanuts.
