Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces and set aside. Mix the soy sauce
and water, then blend into the cornstarch; stir in the sherry, sugar,
ginger, red pepper, and salt.

Preheat a wok or large skillet over high heat; add 2 teaspoons of
peanut oil. Stir-fry the green peppers and onions for 2 minutes and
remove. Add the walnuts and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes until golden
brown. Remove. Add the rest of the oil and stir-fry half of the
chicken for 2 minutes.

Return all the chicken to the wok and stir in the soy mixture. Cook
and stir until bubbly. Stir in the vegetables and walnuts, cover and
cook for
1 minute.
