Step 1

Season chicken with salt and sherry. Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes.

Prepare sauce by whisking together the cornstarch and water in small sauce pan over low heat until smooth. Gradually add the chicken broth and continue to whisk until completely mixed. Add mushrooms, butter, soy sauce, and bouillon granules bring mixture to a boil stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute, then set aside and just keep warm.

Prepare the batter by beating together cornstarch, flour, baking powder, egg, and water until smooth.

Coat the seasoned chicken in the batter and fry at 375 for 5-7 minutes until golden brown on all sides. Set aside on paper towels to absorb excess oil... or just lightly coat a baking sheet with the oil and bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes.

Cut chicken into small strips and lay on a bed of lettuce if using. Sprinkle with almonds and green onions, then spoon sauce over chicken and serve.
