Heat the oil in a wok. Deep fry the chicken, a few pieces at a time, about
1 minute or until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels. Pour all
but 2 TB of the oil out of the wok.

To the oil in the wok, add the chili peppers, garlic and ginger, stir-fry 2
minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining soy sauce, vinegar, white wine and 1
