Spicy Chicken with Peanuts




  • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 3 dried red chiles, split lengthwise in half
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3/4 cup roasted peanuts


  • 2 tablespoons good quality ready-made chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped scallions
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese white rice vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil


  1. Heat a wok over a high heat. Add the oil and chilies and stir-fry for a few seconds (you may remove the chiles when they turn black or leave them in). Next add the chicken and peanuts, and stir-fry for 1 minute.
  2. Remove the chicken, peanuts and chiles from the wok and drain in a colander. Put all the sauce ingredients except the sesame oil into the wok. Bring to a boil and then turn the heat down.
  3. Return the chicken, peanuts, and chiles to the wok and cook for about 3-4 minutes in the sauce, mixing well.
  4. Add the sesame oil. Give the mixture a good stir and remove the chiles, if you prefer; serve immediately.
