Homemade sauce?

I'm making a chicken stir fry and I want to know if there is a quick homemade sauce I could whip up to add to it? Also a good wine to use to poach chicken in!

I just use some chicken broth mixed with a lil cornstarch to thicken it.

Mongolian Stir Fry

1 pound of chicken, cubed
peanut oil for frying
1 small onion, sliced thin
4 oz snow peas
4 oz scallion, green part only
4 oz button mushrooms
2 cloves finely minced garlic

1 egg white
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cornstarch

1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp turbinado sugar
1 tsp Chinese chili sauce
2 Tbs dry sherry, white wine, or rice wine
2 Tbs hoisin sauce
2 Tbs soy sauce
1/4 cup chicken stock

Combine sauce ingredients and set aside. Combine egg white, salt and cornstarch, add meat and mix well to coat. Heat peanut oil in wok over high heat, then stir fry meat until just cooked through and remove from wok. Add additional peanut oil to wok and stir fry onion and snow peas for 1 minute. Add green onion, mushrooms and garlic and continue stir-frying until mushrooms are tender. Add sauce to vegetables and heat until sauce has thickened. Return meat to wok and and stir until heated through.

If I was going to poach chicken in wine, I would buy a reasonably priced (no more than 10 bucks American) domestic pinot grigio
