Ingredients

½ pound chicken breasts
boneless, skinless
1 each egg whites
*
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cornstarch
cup vegetable oil
preferably peanut
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
*
Sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce, dark
1 teaspoon Chinese rice vinegar
*
½ teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons rice wine
½ teaspoon sichuan peppercorns
*
2 teaspoons scallions, spring or green onions
finely chopped

Directions

Cut the chicken breasts into fine shreds 3 inches long.

Mix them with the egg white, salt and cornstarch.

Chill for about 20 minutes.

Heat the oil in a wok or large skillet until moderately hot.

Add the chicken mixture and stir-fry it quickly in the oil to keep it from sticking.

Cook until it turns white, which should take about 1 minute.

Drain the chicken immediately in a colander or sieve and drain off the oil.

Clean the wok and add about 1 tablespoon of the drained oil.

Reheat until it is hot.

Add the sesame seeds and stir-fry them for 1 minute or until slightly brown.

Add the sauce ingredients and bring to a boil.

Return the cooked chicken to the pan and stir-fry the mixture for another 2 minutes, coating the pieces thoroughly with the sauce and sesame seeds.

Serve at once, or let cool and serve at room temperature.
