PREPARATION: For marinade, chop ginger and hot peppers and combine in a glass dish with soy sauce, sherry and oil. Cut chicken into 1-inch cubes and put in marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 4 hours. Trim beans and cut into 1-½-inch lengths. Cut squash and carrot into ⅛-inch diagonal slices. Seed yellow pepper and slice into thin strips. Seed and chop hot peppers.
COOKING: Heat wok over high heat with the 1 tablespoon oil. While heating, remove chicken cubes from marinade. Strain marinade and reserve liquid. Add chicken to wok. Stir fry over medium high heat until chicken is almost done about 3 minutes. Remove from work and set aside. Add beans, sliced carrot, and marinade to wok. Cook about 2 minutes, stirring, and then add squash and peppers. Continue cooking 2 minutes more. Turn off heat. Return chicken to wok and toss. Chop and add basil and season with chili oil if desired.
