Almond Chicken

If you pay a visit to any Chinese food restaurant in the United States, you're quite likely to find almond chicken on the menu. The first step is to prepare your sauce, made from a mix of sherry, soy sauce, corn starch and chicken bouillon. The sauce will be the base of your dish, with additional flavor coming from bamboo shoots, stir-fried almonds, carrot and ginger. Onion and celery finish the list, and don't forget the chicken, cut into small cubes. This recipe will take you through it step by step.
