Cut the chicken breast into slivers, about 1/2-inch x 2-inches. Rub the chicken with salt and cornstarch,
then fold into beaten egg-white.
Roast or toast the peanuts over a low heat until slightly brown and crush or grind coarsely. Cut the green onions into short segments. Cut the dried pepper into matchstick size shreds. Mix the liquid ingredients for the sauce thoroughly.
Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok. Add the chicken slivers and stir them in the hot oil for 1 to 2 minutes. Drain away any excess oil.
Heat the lard (or peanut oil or canola) in the same pan. Add the chopped peppers and green onions; fry for 1 1/2 minutes. Pour in the liquid ingredients for the sauce. Stir quickly to mix. When the liquid thickens return the chicken to the pan. Turn and stir the chicken in the sauce.
Sprinkle the roasted peanuts over the chicken. Turn it over quickly a few times to blend; serve immediately in a well-heated serving dish.
