Singing Chicken


2 to 3 tablespoons peanut oil
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1-1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut crosswise into thin slices*
2 tablespoons Splenda
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon fish sauce
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 fresh jalapeno
3 red chilies, minced
1 teaspoon black pepper
Guar or xanthan

Recipe Directions

Have the chicken sliced, the ingredients measured, the pepper minced and everything standing by and ready to go before starting to cook -- once you start stir-frying, this goes very quickly.

Put a wok or heavy skillet over high heat. Add the oil, let it heat for a minute or so, then add the ginger and garlic. Stir for one minute to flavor the oil. Add the chicken, and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the Splenda, soy sauce, fish sauce, white wine, jalapeno and pepper, stirring often, for 7 to 8 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Thicken pan juices very slightly with guar or xanthan and serve.
