"While you may see this dish frequently at American Chinese restaurants, it is actually a true Cantonese dish. This is the Americanized version that will duplicate what you're used to eating for take-out. You can substitute sherry and soy sauce for the white wine to make a version with brown sauce."

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over high heat. Stir in the mushrooms, snow peas, water chestnuts, and bok choy; season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until the vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the wok and wipe the wok clean.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in the wok. Stir in the garlic and ginger; cook a few seconds until the garlic begins to turn golden brown. Stir in the chicken and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add the wine, sugar, and chicken broth; bring to a boil. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and stir into the simmering sauce. Once the sauce returns to a simmer, stir until thick and clear, about 30 seconds. Return the vegetables to the wok and toss until hot and coated with the sauce.

Eh, this was all right. For all the work I did, it would've been easier to just call the Chinese food place. The taste was bland, something is missing, I'm not sure what. I had to triple the sau...

I did not enjoy this. I had really high hopes as the list of ingredients looked wonderful. The only thing I changed was the veggies. I used carrots and left out bok choy and waterchestnuts. ...

Great! I think next time I will double or triple the sauce. It tastes very similar to what you buy in chinese restaurants.

Delicious! I made it exactly as it was written, but I wish I would have made some rice to eat with it. This is going to be a regular at our house :)

This tasted bland as written. I ended up adding some soy sauce to give it a kick before serving.

Very good dish. I would omit any fish sauce... But great texture and taste!

This is soo good! Its light and fresh and quick. Nice when you really don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. throw some rice in the rice cooker and you have a meal!!
