Cut the chicken into bite-sized evenly shaped cubes or slivers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cut the celery into same size shapes as the chicken. Dice the garlic and ginger. Heat wok, adding oil. When nice and hot, add the chicken pieces and stir-fry several minutes until lightly browned and done. Remove to a bowl. Add the garlic, celery and ginger to hot pan, adding a bit more oil if necessary. Stir-fry 2-3 minutes. In meantime, combine the soy sauce, broth, cornstarch and sherry in glass measuring cup, whisking well. Pour into the wok with the vegetables, add the chicken.
