Orange chicken I made

Okay I took the breading/marinade from this recipe
http://chinesefood.about.com/od/poul...amechicken.htm
Fried it in peanut oil. It wasn't crunchy like I like it, but, it had a very good taste. { I have no clue what to do with the sherry now. They didn't have a small bottle where I went}
I made the orange sauce from this recipe.

I made these wontons also. These were my favorite of all of it.

The chicken pieces weren't crunchy because they were wet, is my guess.

Try drying them and recoating lightly with cornstarch right before you fry them.

Sherry lasts a long time and I am sure you'll find another recipe that calls for it. A jar of sherry is also a good way to store fresh ginger.
