Directions:

Mix broth, soy, sherry, cornstarch, and sesame oil to blend; set aside.  Mix chicken with garlic and chilies.

In a wok or 12-inch frying pan over high heat, heat 2 teaspoons oil until  hot.  Add half the chicken mixture; stir-fry until chicken has golden brown tinge and is no longer pink in thickest part (cut to test), about 3 minutes;  remove to a dish.  Repeat with remaining chicken, adding oil as  needed.

Return cooked chicken to wok; stir in reserved sauce, onion pieces, and  nuts.  Cook, stirring, until sauce bubbles and thickens, about 1  minute.  Serve with rice; add onion garnish.  Serves 4.
