Crispy Sweet And Spicy Chicken


This Crispy Sweet And Spicy Chicken is one of my favorite items in the menu of a local gastro pub. The chicken is lightly battered and fried until crispy golden brown. Toss some Thai sweet chili sauce, some fried egg roll crisps, and top if off with some sesame seeds. Simply delightful!

Crispy Sweet And Spicy Chicken

Ingredients

2 Pieces /350 g Skinless and boneless Chicken Breast, lightly pounded and cubed (about ¾-inch pieces)

1 Egg
1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
A pinch of Sea Salt
A few dashes of White Pepper

2 ½ Tbsp Corn Flour
1 Cup Fried Egg Rolls Crisps (about 2 pieces egg roll wrappers, cut into small triangles or squares) Click here for the recipe
Peanut Oil, for frying
2 tsp Roasted Sesame Seeds
Sauce
2 Cloves Garlic, chopped
½ tsp Minced Ginger
½ Cup Thai Sweet Chili Sauce
2 Tbsp Sriracha
2 Tbsp Water
½ tsp Sesame Oil

Method

Marinade the chicken pieces with egg, soy sauce, sea salt, pepper, and corn flour for about 15 minutes.

Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

Heat enough oil for deep-frying to 350-380˚F. (Medium to high heat) Add the chicken and deep-fry until it is crisp and golden, about 2 ½ to 3 minutes. (If you are deep-frying in a wok with a relatively small volume of oil, fry the chicken in batches.) Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and set aside. Pour the oil into a heatproof container, and clean the wok if necessary.



Return the wok to a medium heat with 1 Tbsp of the oil. Toss in the ginger, garlic and stir-fry for a few seconds, then add sauce, stirring as it thickens. Tip in the chicken and fried egg roll crisps; stir to coat it in sauce. Top with some roasted sesame seeds and serve.
