1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon dry sherry
2 tablespoon cider vinegar

Lightly beat the egg white in a small bowl. Add the first measures of soy sauce and cornstarch. Mix well. Add the chicken. Toss thoroughly. Let stand for 15 minutes. Combine the second measure of soy sauce, the second measure of cornstarch, the sherry, cider vinegar and sugar in a second small bowl. Mix very well. Set the sauce aside. Heat the oil in a large wok or skillet over medium heat. Add the cashews. Stir fry for about 1 minute. Use a slotted spoon to remove the cashews. Set aside. Discard 1/3 of the oil.
