3 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
To bread Chicken
Dip chicken in the following mixture:
3 eggs, beaten
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Then coat chicken in the following mixture:
1 c. flour
1/2 c. cornstarch
Repeat if you like a more battered chicken. Fry 3-4 minutes in hot oil until chicken is a goldeny brown. Don't overcook the chicken (cut a few nuggets open to see that it's cooked when you're first starting out).
10 Tbsp Sugar
10 Tbsp Vinegar
3 Tbsp Soy Sauce
Zest of one orange
1 Tbsp corn starch
Mix all together and boil over medium heat until thickened. I also add OJ one Tbsp at a time, to taste. Set aside.
In a large wok/pan, saute
2 cloves of pressed garlic
1 Tbsp minced ginger root (can sub 1/2 tsp ginger spice if needed)
in 3 Tbsp chicken broth
until you can smell the garlic, gingery goodness. Add 1 bunch of chopped green onions and crushed red pepper to your desired level of spiciness. Then dump in the sauce and the fried chicken pieces. Serve over rice (we use Basmati - smells absolutely divine).
Just curious, have you ever had a day like this:
Thankfully, it ended with one of these:
