1 whole chicken (4 LB), cut up
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sherry 3 tbsp catsup
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp peanut oil
6 fresh apricots (3/4 LB), halved
3 green onions, cut into 2-inch slivers
Cut chicken parts into 2-inch pieces, using a cleaver, whacking straight down
through the bone (or have a butcher do it for you).
Combine vinegar, water, sugar, soy sauce, sherry, catsup, and cornstarch for
sauce; set aside.
In a wok or large frying pan, heat oil and stir-fry chicken over high heat 10
minutes or until tender and golden brown.
Add apricots; stir-fry 1 minute.
Pour sauce mixture over chicken; cook, stirring until thickened.
Garnish with green onion slivers.
