In a bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Add 2 tablespoons soy sauce, sherry, 2 tablespoons water, and oil. Stir the mixture until it is smooth and add the cubed chicken. Coat the chicken, cover the bowl, and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Boil the chicken broth, remaining soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, sesame oil, and garlic. In another bowl, mix the ½ cup water with ¼ cup cornstarch so the cornstarch dissolves. Stir the mixture into the pan and simmer for 2 minutes. Lower the heat. In a deep fryer, heat the oil to 375 degrees F and add a few pieces of chicken at a time. Fry the chicken for 4 minutes and drain on paper towels. Transfer the fried chicken to a serving bowl and pour the hot sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.
