Sesame Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

2 to 3 chicken breasts
2 tablespoons Shaoxing Wine
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons cornstarch
head of broccoli cut into florets (blanched)
1 large white onion
1 inch of ginger,julienned or minced
2 garlic cloves minced
toasted sesame seeds
peanut oil
chicken broth
Ground Chili Paste (Sambal Oelek)
cornstarch
green onions


Cut chicken into thin slices. (easier to do if chicken is partially frozen).
Season chicken with Shaoxing Wine, sesame oil and cornstarch and set aside for 20 minutes.
Heat wok or large frying pan, (I use a large cast iron round griddle) over high heat.  Add oil and quickly saute chicken.  Remove from pan.
Add a little more oil, add the onions and cook for a minute before adding the broccoli.  Stir fry for a minute or two before adding the garlic and the ginger.  
Stir well.  Add the chicken back into the pan.  Mix the chili paste and a little cornstarch into 1 cup of chicken broth. 
Pour over chicken mixture, stir and cook just long enough for the sauce to thicken. 
Add a little bit more chicken broth if needed.  
Add sliced green onions and serve over rice or noodles.  Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
