From: A Taste of Chinatown, Americas Native Chinese Cuisine by Joie Warner NOTE: for milder heat, leave chilies whole, for medium hot, break up half of them (use rubber gloves or plastic bags to protect hands while breaking them up), for hottest, break up all the chilies. Combine marinade ingredients in a bowl, stirring to mix thoroughly. Cut up chicken into 1/2 inch pieces and add to marinade, tossing to coat. Marinate 2 to 24 hours, covered, in the refrigerator. When ready to begin cooking: Combine seasoning liquid ingredients in a small bowl. Stir and set aside. Have chilies, garlic and orange peel ready together on a small plate or bowl. Give meat another toss to coat in the marinade. Heat wok on high heat and add cooking oil. When hot, add chilies (including seeds), garlic and orange peel (Note: The original recipe goes: cook the meat in 2 Tb oil, remove from pan, then cook these ingredients in 1 Tb oil, return meat to pan, cook another minute, then add seasoning liquid. I prefer this way, but you may want to use that order). Toss for 30 seconds or so, until fragrance is released and chilies begin to blacken. Add chicken and marinade and stir fry for a minute or two, until opaque and well coated with the chili mixture. Re-stir seasoning liquid and pour over chicken. Toss for 1 minute or so, until the chicken is glazed by the sauce. Drizzle on 1 Tb sesame oil, stir, and transfer to heated serving platter. Notes: This should carry an addictive warning label : ) Because there is no batter to get soggy, this reheats very well in a microwave. The recipe also doubles well, if you have a large enough wok. Ive added a cup or two of blanched broccoli florettes and/or soaked dried black Chinese mushrooms, cut into strips, before the sauce for variety. Goes really well with a light beer, like Kirin or Corona. To make Hot Hot Orange Beef instead, follow the same recipe with the following substitutions: Marinate 1/2 lb flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain, in: 1 lrg egg white, 1 Tb soy sauce, 1 Tb cornstarch, 1/8 tsp ground white pepper, 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil, And cook 30 sec to a minute, until medium rare, before adding sauce.
