Crispy Chicken

Crispy is the word for this chicken. Its impossible to lay your hands off this one! Do try it. Its crispy fried chicken rolled in sauce.

Step 1
Ingredients :

For Frying - Step 1
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces.
1 tbspn corn flour
1/4 tsp pepper powder
Salt to taste.
Oil for deep frying

Method For Frying - Step 1
Mix all the ingredients and deep fry till crispy and set aside on paper towel.

Step 2
Ingredients :

For Sauce - Step 2
1 small onion diced finely
1 tsp ginger finely chopped
1 tsp garlic finely chopped
2 tbspn tomato ketchup
1 tsp red chilli paste
1 tbpsn Oyster sauce
1 tbspn oil
Greens of one spring onion for garnishing (Chopped)

Method For Sauce - Step 2
Take oil in pan, add onions, garlic, ginger, saute till the onions are transculent. Add the tomato sauce, chilli paste, oyster sauce. Just when you are ready to eat, add the sauce to the fried chicken, mix in well, garnish with greens of spring onion.

Tasty when hot! So please eat it hot.
The above pic doesn't have greens of onion as I didn't have a stock of it then.

Tips : The chicken takes time to get deep fried, remove only when the colour turns golden brown. Heat the oil, once hot, fry on low flame. Over frying will make the chicken chewy.

Use Oyster Sauce only as the flavour is given to this dish by this ingredient.
(You may use mildly sweet soy sauce, if you don't have oyster sauce on hand, but the original flavour will differ!)
