I didn't have dry sherry, so I used regular drinking sherry and some white wine. I'm not sure if that was what caused the problem or not, but I got as far as the marinade in this recipe, and disliked the flavor so much that I poured it down the drain and started again from scratch, without the recipe. I used soy sauce, maple syrup, black pepper, white wine, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and far less five spice powder than called for in the recipe to make the marinade. I also added sesame seeds to the flour mixture for dredging, and added steamed broccoli and carrots to the chicken for the final stir-fry step. It ended up great, but I would definitely recommend tasting the marinade as you go and adjusting the recipe to suit your tastes.
