Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

REC - Kung Pao Chicken Stir Fry(TNT)
Yakuta, posted this more authentic version of Kung Pao Chicken where you could substitute beef.
4 Boneless chicken breasts cut into small cubes (about an inch)
1 spring onion/scallion finely chopped
1 inch stick of fresh ginger grated
6 dried chillies (arabol)
1 cup of peanuts (unsalted)
For the sauce
1/2 tbsp of cornstarch
2 tbsp of dark soy sauce
1 tbsp of oyster sauce
1 tsp of sugar
1 tbsp of rice vinegar
1/4 tsp of sesame oil (too much and it will be overpowering)
Salt to taste (soy and oyster both have good amount so be careful)
Oil about a cup.
First add about 1/2 cup of oil to a saute pan. When the oil is slightly hot add the peanuts and stir them on a low flame until they are lightly toasted and browned. Drain them on a paper towel.
Next crank up the flame and add the chicken cubes to the oil and stri fry them in the hot oil until lightly browned. Remove and drain on a paper towels.
Now heat up some oil in a wok. Once it's really hot (smoke should come out of it). Add the arabol chillies, followed by the reserved chicken. Now add the sauce ingredients and finely the peanuts. Cook on high heat for 5 minutes stirring it constantly. Finely shut the heat and stir in the chopped scallions. Serve with rice of your choice (plain or fried).
