Mix first 6 ingredients in a bowl large enough to hold 1 pound of cut up chicken. Add chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces. Mix to cover all chicken with marinade. Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour.

While chicken is marinating, cut up vegetables. Heat a large heavy skillet, and add 1 or 2 tablespoons of oil, 1 slice of ginger, and one crushed clove of garlic. Stir these around for a minute or 2, then remove. Do not allow them to burn.

Add the vegetables one at a time, stirring them constantly so that they heat evenly. Sprinkle salt, pepper, sugar, and a little wine over them, to give them some flavor.

When the vegetables are almost done, add the chicken and marinade, broth, and potato starch mixture. Be careful of the steam that will arise. Stir constantly, until liquid begins to thicken.

Serve hot, with klp noodles (recipe should be in archive) or boiled potatoes.
