  • Combine chicken, Shaoxing and sauces in a bowl and set aside. Heat half the peanut oil in a wok over high heat until smoking. Add garlic and ginger and stir-fry until fragrant (10-20 seconds). Add bamboo shoots and mushrooms, stir-fry until just tender and transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon. Add remaining oil to wok. Drain chicken (reserve sauce) and stir-fry with green onion until chicken turns opaque (1-2 minutes). Add reserved sauce and cook until sauce is bubbling (10-20 seconds), then return mushroom mixture to pan and toss to combine.
