In a zipper bag, combine chicken, green onions, half the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, salt, sherry and sesame oil. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Mix the remaining cornstarch with 1/3 cup cold water.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and heat. Add the broccoli and red pepper; stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the remaining garlic, water, and season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry until the broccoli is bright green but still crisp, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Heat the skillet again, and add 2 tablespoons oil. Add the chicken and chili flakes, if desired. Stir-fry until the chicken is no longer pink, about 3 minutes.

Add the broccoli mixture and hoisin sauce; toss to heat through.

Stir in the reserved cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil to thicken. Taste and season with salt and pepper, if you like.

Garnish with sesame seeds and serve with rice.

"One of my favorite stir fry recipes. Loved the sweet from the sugar and the spice from the chili flakes. I used frozen broccoli florets that had been thawed."
