Ingredients

1 1/3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4), cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tablespoon plus 4 teaspoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons dry sherry
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon wine vinegar
1/2 head Chinese cabbage (about 1 pound), sliced
3/4 cup drained sliced water chestnuts (from one 8-ounce can)
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1/4 teaspoon dried red-pepper flakes
3 tablespoons water
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro or scallion tops
1/8 teaspoon salt


In a medium bowl, combine the chicken with the 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of the sherry and the cayenne. Let marinate for 10 minutes.


In a wok or large frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over moderately high heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring, until almost done, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove.


Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Add the onion, garlic and coriander. Cook, stirring, until the onions are golden, about 4 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons sherry and the vinegar. Cook, stirring, 1 minute longer.


Add the cabbage, water chestnuts, the remaining 4 teaspoons soy sauce, the tomato paste, red-pepper flakes and water and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes longer. Add the chicken and any accumulated juices, the cilantro and the salt and cook, stirring, until the chicken is just done, 1 to 2 minutes longer.


Wine Recommendation: You need a straightforward white wine with plenty of acidity to survive the garlic, soy sauce and hot pepper in this dish. A chenin blanc from the Loire Valley in France, particularly from Vouvray, Saumur or Anjou, will be able to hold its own.
