Crunchy Chicken Bits1-1/2 cups roasted peanuts
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoons dry sherry
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
2 whole chicken breasts, boned and thinly sliced
2-1/2 cups peanut oil 

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

Pre-heat 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. May be served plain or with a sweet and soul sauce. Makes about 30.
