  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbs. Cornstarch
  • 1/2 tbs. Soy sauce
  • 1 Egg white
  • 1/2 tsp Freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tbs Dry sherry
  • 2-3 Cloves garlic (minced)

Preparation
Mix the chicken with all of the seasonings and the egg white.  Mix it very well.  Form into balls about the size of large walnuts and set on waxed paper cling wrap or aluminum foil.
