Laura's notes for this recipe:
This recipe was given to me by my Aunt, who many years ago, when I was a child introduced me to Chinese cuisine. This was served in a popular Detroit Chinese restaurant and it was actually the first Chinese food that I ever ate. I loved it then and love it now. Takes some time and prep but well worth the effort.

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,soy sauce, butter and boullion granules. Bring 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 large skillet or wok and add oil to a depth of 1/2 inch. Heat to 375 degrees. Cook coated chicken pieces in oil until they are golden brown, turning once. This should take about 5-7 minutes. Drain the chicken on a tempura rack if you have one or on a paper towel. Cut the fried chicken in diagonal strips. Reassemble the strips into a chicken breast shape and place on a bed of shredded lettuce. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and green onions. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and serve.
