Almond Chicken Recipe

Recipe Ingredients:
1-1/2 cups water
4 tbsp dry sherry, divided
4-1/2 tsp cornstarch
1 tbsp cornstarch
4 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp instant chicken bouillon granules
1 egg white
1/2 tsp salt
4 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
vegetable oil for frying
1/2 cup blanched whole almonds (about 3 ounces)
1 large carrot, diced
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
6 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 ribs celery, diagonally cut into 1/2-inch pieces
8 fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup sliced bamboo shoots (1/2 of 8-ounce can), drained

Cooking Directions:
1.  Combine water, 2 tablespoons sherry, 4-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch, the soy sauce and bouillon granules in small saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens, about 5 minutes. Keep warm.

2.  Combine remaining 2 tablespoons sherry, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, egg white and salt in medium bowl. Add chicken pieces; stir to coat well.

3.  Heat oil in wok or large skillet over high heat to 375

4.  Remove all but 2 tablespoons oil from wok. Add almonds and stir-fry until golden, about 2 minutes; remove almonds and drain. Add carrot and ginger; stir-fry 1 minute. Add all remaining ingredients; stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in chicken, almonds and sauce; cook and stir until heated through.
