Redemption of a failed culinary experiment

Last night I tried a new dish, chinese teriyaki chicken strips. 
  • I marinated chicken breast strips in 
    • 4oz Shaoshing cooking wine,

    • 4 oz soy sauce,

    • 2 T sugar,

    • 1T grated ginger.

  • Stir-fried chicken till almost cooked

  • Added marinated and cooked until sauce thickened 
Unfortunately, my wok was too small for the amount of chicken. Next time I cook in batches. The chicken came out dry, although my daughter said the flavor was good.

Redemption of the dish came with lunch today. I made a sauce from duck fat, chicken stock, and a little Old Bay Seasoning, and added the chicken to it. With a slice of home-baked bread, it made for a very indulgent lunch.
