This is so good, I\'ve made it once and am making it again tonight, it is beyond good, if you like kung pao chicken you will love this...

2 T. oyster sauce
2 T. sherry or rice wine
1 t. cornstarch

1/2 cup shelled peanuts
5 to 10 dried small red chili peppers
1/4 t. crushed red pepper flakes
1 t. crushed garlic

[edit] Vegetables:
1 green bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch dice
1 can (5-oz) sliced bamboo shoots, drained (optional)

Mix all Chicken/Marinade ingredients in a bowl, stir well and allow to marinate for 1/2-hour.
Mix Sauce ingredients in another bowl and set aside until needed. Stir out any lumps.
Heat wok or large frying pan until water drops bead up and dance on the hot surface.
