Chicken Bites

1 1/2 cups peanuts, roasted
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar, granulated
2 tbsp dry sherry
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
2 chicken breast, boneless and thinly sliced
2 1/2 cups peanut oil

Crunchy Chicken Bites Directions

Drop peanuts into a blender a few at a time; chop to a meal like consistency.

Pour chopped peanuts on a plate or platter and set aside. Combine cornstarch, salt and sugar; add sherry and mix.

Stir into the lightly beaten egg whites. Dip chicken slices into the sherry-egg mixture to coat; then roll in peanuts. Preheat oil to 375° F.

Drop about 8 or 10 chicken slices into the hot oil at a time. Fry 2 to 3 minutes turning until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

Serve hot as appetizers. Maybe served plain or with a sweet and sour sauce.
