I had this dish the other day at a restaurant, but would like to make it myself. So, I searched DC and thanks to KG I have a recipe.

Thank you for the recipe, Kansasgirl! I ate this at a restaurant once when I was on vacation, and have always wished I had a recipe for it.

Hey kansasgirl, I'm going to be making this recipe in a few hours :D. I'll let ya know how it went...I've always wanted to make Chinese take-out at home.

In addition, I don't seem to have any rice wine, only rice vingear(are rice vinegar and rice wine vinegar the same thing?). Is there anything I can substitute, or may I just leave it out entirely?

Lastly, I don't have any real crushed red chillis, just the ones you get from pizza places(I have a big canister of it) --> can I use that?

Thanks in advance.

Made it, turned out yummy, though I used eggs and Frank's hot sauce together instead of the egg, pepper, salt, and oil combo. Also, I didn't use the wine at all and lastly, I decided to do a flour/baking soda/baking powder dredge instead of the corn starch/flour. Very happy with the result!
