Hello :) I plan on trying this recipe tonight http://www.foodnetwork.ca/ontv/shows/...

It calls for Chinese Cooking Wine, I've looked online and usually it says that it's used as an enhancer and can be left out. In this recipe however it calls for 1/4 cup which I find is a lot for and enhancer. I was thinking of substituting it with homemade chicken stock I have frozen and maybe a tsp of Sherry? I'm afraid the Sherry would be too strong. The only other thing I could do is maybe add a tbsp. or two of oyster sauce to the stock to give it more flavour since I find the recipe to be kinda plain.
I bought chicken thighs yesterday and would like to make them tonight, I've never cooked thighs before so I'm open to other suggestions. Thanks in advance!
