  • 12  ounces  skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2  tablespoons  dry sherry
  • 2  tablespoons  light soy sauce
  • 1  tablespoon  grated fresh ginger
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  •  Nonstick cooking spray

Add green onions and stir-fry for 1 minute more. Remove vegetables from wok; set aside. Add chicken mixture to wok. Stir-fry for 2 to 4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Push chicken from center of wok. Stir cornstarch mixture; add to center of wok. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly.
