For Chicken:

Hold each chicken portion by the end of a leg and use a kitchen
towel to grab the skin at the thigh end. Pull off the skin and
discard. With a sharp boning or paring knife, slit the meat on the
legs and thighs, cutting parallel to the bone. Scrape the meat away
from the bone. Cut through the joint between the leg and the thigh.
Scrape away all of the remaining meat and cut or pull out the bones.
Place each boned piece of chicken, skinned side down, on a work
surface and break up tendons by scoring the meat with a cleaver. Cut
the meat into 1 1/2-inch pieces and transfer them to a small bowl.

Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper and rice wine. Stir in
the beaten egg, sprinkle with cornstarch and toss to combine. Drizzle
with oil, toss, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

For Sauce:

In a small bowl, stir together a little of the stock and the
cornstarch. Add remaining sauce ingredients and set aside.

For Finishing Sauce:

Blend together ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

For Spinach:

In a wok, or a large skillet, heat the oil until nearly smoking.
Add spinach, stock, garlic and salt and stir-fry until just wilted, 1
to 1 1/2 minutes. Arrange in a large ring on a warm serving plate.

To Assemble:

In a second wok, or skillet, heat oil to 360 F (a piece of garlic
will sizzle steadily when placed in oil). Add chicken pieces,
separating them with skimmer,and fry, turning once or twice, until
lightly golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.
Raise heat of oil to 400 F and return the chicken to the wok. Fry
until golden brown, about 1 minute, then remove and drain. Pour off
al but 1 tablespoon of oil. Add garlic, scallions, and ginger an cook
for about 30 seconds. Add sauce, then chicken and toss to coat. Add
finishing mixture, tossing to combine. Arrange chicken on spinach and
serve immediately.
