Preparation

Step 1

Mix together 1 teaspoon sherry, soy sauce, 1/4 teaspoon salt, cornstarch, beaten egg, and white pepper to form marinade. Marinate chicken for 20 minutes.

Coat chicken with flour. Heat in wok or heavy skillet and fry chicken on both sides until golden brown. Add rice wine and cover briefly to steam flavors in. Remove chicken from pan and chop into bite-sized pieces.

Reheat pan, add garlic, and simmer a few seconds. Combine remaining ingredients except cornstarch mixed with water to form a sauce; add to pan. Add lemon rind and ginger slices. When mixture boils, thicken with cornstarch and water. Remove ginger and lemon rind. Pour over chicken.
