"I just made it tonight and was a big hit. I didn't find the orange sauce in store so I used La Choy orange stir fry sauce with ginger and just didn't put in the fresh ginger with the garlic. I also didn't fine rice wine and used apple juice instead."

1 Egg
2 lb Boneless chicken pieces
Vegetable oil
1/2 tsp sesame oil; (up to 1 tsp)
1/2 c cornstarch; Plus 1 Tbsp
1 tb Ginger root; minced
1 ts Garlic; minced
White pepper
1/4 c Flour
1 tb Rice wine
ds hot red chiles; Crushed
1 1/2 ts Salt
1/4 c Green Onions; chopped
1/4 c Water

This was so yummy and easy to make. The grocery store didn't have rice wine so I used white wine, it was what I had available, and it tasted just fine.
