Chinese Style Fried Chicken


6 chicken breasts ( cut into inch pieces)

6 egg whites

1 1/2 cups soy sauce

2 cups flour

2 cups cornstarch

2 cups vegetable oil


Cut chicken into inch pieces.

Whisk together egg whites and soy sauce.

Soak chicken in soy mixture for 20 minutes covered in the fridge.

Add 2 cups oil to wok or deep fryer.

Heat wok to 350°F.

Put cornstarch and flour into a reseal able plastic freezer bag.

Add chicken to bag a little at a time, shake until evenly coated. Add more of the 50/50 flour mixture as needed to finish the job.

Add chicken to wok.

Fry 15 seconds only. No browning yet!

Remove chicken and place aside on a cookie sheet or bowl lined with paper towels.

After all of the chicken has cooked for 15 seconds let cool for a few minutes.

Fry it an additional 15-20 seconds or until golden.

Always check meat. If it is pink it needs to be cooked longer.
