  • Ingredients:

  • 1

    lb. boneless chicken breast, cubed

  • 3

    eggs, beaten

  • ½

    c cornstarch

  • 2

    dried chili pods

  • red pepper flakes

  • green onion, chopped

  • Sauce:

  • 4

    tsp cornstarch

  • 3

    tbsp rice vinegar

  • 3

    tbsp rice wine

  • 6

    tbsp sugar

  • 6

    tbsp soy sauce


Directions: 1. Thoroughly blend the 1/2 cup of cornstarch and the eggs in a bowl; add the chicken and toss to coat. 2. In a separate bowl, prepare the sauce by combining the 4 tsp cornstarch with the vinegar, wine, sugar and soy sauce. 3. First-Stage Frying: Heat 1-2 inches of oil in a wok to medium-high heat. 4. Fry the chicken in small batches, just long enough to cook the chicken through. 5. Remove the chicken to absorbent paper and allow to stand. 6. Second-Stage Frying: Add the pepper pods to the oil and stir-fry briefly to release the aroma. Return the chicken to the wok and stir-fry until the pieces are crispy brown. 7. Add the sauce-mixture to the wok, tossing over the heat until the sauce caramelizes into a glaze (1-2 minutes). 8. Depending on how spicy you want it to be, you can add a dash or more of red pepper flakes. 9. Sprinkle some green onions on top.
