Let's Make It
Mix chicken, sherry and 1 tsp. cornstarch. Let stand 15 min.
Meanwhile, mix dressing, soy sauce, remaining cornstarch, vinegar and hot pepper sauce. Set aside.
Heat oil in large skillet or wok on medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic; cook and stir 15 sec. Add chicken mixture; cook and stir 4 min. or until chicken is done. Push chicken to side of skillet.
Stir dressing mixture; add to center of skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add onions and nuts; mix to coat all ingredients with dressing mixture. Cook and stir 1 to 2 min. or until heated through. Serve with rice.
This style of cooking is very quick. It's helpful to have all your ingredients ready to go before your start cooking. If not, the consistency of the sauce can be changed. If sauce is too thick for your taste, add chicken broth or water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency. If sauce is too thin for your taste, cook longer until desired consistency is reached.
