Equipment

  • Mixing bowl
  • Deepfrying pan
  • Kitchen roll/tissue

Ingredients
  

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp ginger about a thumbnail's worth
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1.5 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp demerara sugar
  • 5 tbsp corn flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp table salt and ground white pepper

Instructions
 

  • Cut the chicken breasts into small cubes; bear in mind that the larger you cut the chicken the longer it’ll take to cook.
  • Combine all the other ingredients then add the chicken and marinade for at least 30 minutes. Stir again before you start frying.
  • Fill a deep-frying pan with 3 in. of sunflower or vegetable oil (about the depth of your thumb). Heat to 170ºc on a medium-high heat.
  • Gently lay the marinated chicken in the heated oil, turning every 90 seconds. Cook for approximately 6-7 minutes, then lay on tissue paper to soak up any excess oil.
