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.
