How to make it
- Sprinkle chicken with salt and sherry and marinate for 15 minutes.
- While chicken is marinating, prepare the sauce. Mix together the cornstarch and water in a small saucepan until smooth.
- Gradually mix in the chicken broth, mushrooms (if using), chicken fat or butter, soy sauce, and bouillon granules.
- Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Let boil for 1 minute, and keep warm.
- To prepare batter:
- Beat together the cornstarch, flour, baking powder, egg, and water until smooth.
- Coat each piece of chicken with the batter.
- Heat wok or a large skillet and add oil to a depth of 1/2-inch.
- Heat to 375 degrees.
- Cook coated chicken pieces in oil until they are golden, turning them once. This should take about 5 - 7 minutes.
- Drain the chicken on a tempura rack if you have one, or on paper towels.
- Cut the chicken diagonally into strips.
- Reassemble the strips into chicken breast shapes and place on a bed of shredded lettuce.
- Sprinkle with almonds and green onion.
- Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve.
