   CUT CHICKEN INTO THIN SLICES 2 inches long, cutting against the
   grain. Put it into a bowl together with the soy sauce, rice wine or
   sherry, ginger, cornstarch and 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Mix well, and
   then let the mixture marinate for about 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a
   wok or large skillet until it is very hot. Remove the chicken from
   the marinade with a slotted spoon. Add it to the pan and stir-fry it
   for 2 minutes until it browns. Remove it and leave to drain in a
   colander or sieve. Pour off most of the oil, leaving about 2
   teaspoons. Reheat the pan over a high heat and then add the dried
   chiles. Stir-fry them for 10 seconds, and then return the chicken to
   the pan. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir-fry for 4 minutes,
   mixing well. Serve the dish at once.
