Wow! This is even better than the BEST I have had in my fave Chinese restaurant. To make the meal go quickly prep everything the day or night before and store in the fridge. To make this easy to understand I have changed the terms to cornstarch slurry and sauce. The first is used to coat the chicken for frying, the second to coat the fried chicken. HTH I use a grater with small holes for the garlic or you can just zip all the sauce ingredients up in a blender or food processor. Enjoy! NOTE: I really appreciate all the reviews this recipe has received. I know that when making this it seems strange and like it just is not going to work. Trust that it will work even though the method and the way that the cornstarch slurry acts before cooking are so different. I was the same way the first time I made this. It does result in crispy pieces of chicken that are so like you find in a restaurant. The heat here is pretty much a balanced amount because some like it hot and some do not. Taste and add more heat as desired. Thanks again for trying this recipe. I hope that you have the great results that I have had time and again.

These are so delicious, I have even made this with pork breakfast sausage meat, do not precook the sausage meat for this as the meat will cook when baked --- make a double batch of these and freeze them, they won't last long! You can also add in a couple teaspoons minced yellow onions or a green onion very finely chopped if desired --- *note* this recipe was developed using original Bisquick baking mix, I cannot promise the same results using a clone mix for this.
My mother makes this for every big holiday get-together, and it is always a huge hit. Don't let the ingredients fool you--they taste extraordinary together, and this is such an easy treat to bring to a potluck or office party. (Also, the cheese ball looks great in a cake dome, if you need to transport it.)
Soft, street-vendor type pretzels.
I'de been experimenting with various recipes for pretzels, and finally created this one which everyone agrees is perfect, especially when accompanied with our simple and easy to make Recipe #280453 :)
You can also make pretzel rolls which are wonderful for burgers.
A different kind of party dip. If you like buffalo wings, but don't want the mes, you'll like this dip. It makes a lot so it's definitely for a party. Can be served cold or hot. I have also cut the recipe in half and it works well.
Delicious! Yummy caramelized legs, kids love these! So quick and easy and no marinating required. Just prepare the sauce, pour over the chook and pop in the oven! I actually like this with wings better ;-)
VERY IMPORTANT TO LEAVE IT IN THE OVEN UNTIL IT HAS CARAMALISED TO AVOID DISAPPOINMENT.
Thank you to everyone for their positive reviews!
Try adding Sambal Oelek as Chef #27416 has suggested in his review. What a great idea ;-)
I have tried tons of recipes in my quest to duplicate "Auntie Anne's" pretzels. I found this one on the net, and it really tastes VERY similar to the real thing, best one so far. I have tried experimenting with add-ins and toppings. One of my faves is adding dried italian seasoning to the dough and sprinkling with parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and coarse salt, dipping
