2 cloves garlic, minced
1-inch piece peeled fresh ginger, minced
1 T. soy sauce
2 T. sugar
1 T. plus 1 t. cornstarch
1 1/4 t. salt

Directions:
In medium bowl, toss chicken with scallion whites, half the garlic and ginger, soy sauce, sugar, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1 teaspoon salt, sherry and sesame oil. Marinate at room temperature 15 minutes. Mix remaining cornstarch with water. Heat large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and heat. Add broccoli stems and stir fry 30 seconds. Add florets and remaining garlic, ginger, 2 tablespoons water and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Stir fry until broccoli is bright green but still crisp, 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Reheat skillet with 2 more tablespoons of oil. Add chicken and chili flakes. Stir fry until chicken loses its raw color and gets a little brown, 3 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce; return broccoli to pan and toss to heat through. Stir in reserved cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil to thicken. Add more water to thin sauce, if necessary. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Mound stir-fry on a serving platter or divide among 4 plates and garnish with sesame seeds; serve with rice.
