2 tbsp peanut or vegetable oil
4 skinless chicken breast halves, cut into chunks
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp extra dry vermouth
6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
2 bunches shallots, trimmed and chopped
1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
4 cups diced watermelon (seedless)
Heat oil in a wok on high heat until it just begins to smoke. Stir-fry chicken until it begins to brown. Reduce heat to medium and add soy sauce, vermouth, garlic and ginger. Stir-fry until most of the liquid evaporates. Add shallots and sesame seeds and sauté until chicken is cooked through. Arrange watermelon on plates and serve the chicken over the top.
Serves 4 to 6.
