Mix chicken, sherry, soy, and salt. Let sit for at least 30 min. Mix in beaten egg. Combine cornstarch and flour (this makes a coating that approximates water chestnut flour). Dredge chicken cubes in flour, shaking off excess. Let rest for a few minutes. Deep fry in hot oil (360) for 2 (for white meat) to 3 (for dark meat) min. Drain on paper towels and keep warm. Saute ginger and garlic in oil over high heat. Add rest of sauce ingredients. Add peppers and stir-cook for 1 min. Add pineapple and lychee/orange. Raise heat to high high. Mix cornstarch with water and mix in. Taste now for seasoning - if it needs a little sugar, vinegar, or salt, add that now. When sauce thickens and turns glossy, it is ready. MEANWHILE, reheat the kettle of oil to high (375) and refry the chicken for 2 min or until its golden and crispy on the outside. Add chicken to sauce and vegetables, toss, and serve with white rice.
