3 tbsp dry sherry
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 tbsp canola oil
1 white onion, chopped

1) In a medium bowl, stir together. 1 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp sherry, and the cayenne. Add in chicken and marinate for 10 minutes.
2) In a wok or large frying pan, heat 1 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until almost done. Remove and set aside.
3) Add remaining 1 tbsp oil to the pan. Cook onion, garlic, and coriander together, stirring, for about 5 minutes. Add remaining 2 tbsp sherry and red wine vinegar. Cook for 1 more minute.
