Chicken Almond Soo Guy

Recipe by Leslie

This is my absolute favourite dish to order when eating out. I found this on the web, posted by Amelie in Quebec, and it sounds like the real deal. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005, I have not tried to make this one yet! Hope you enjoy!

I used low sodium soya sauce but the two tsp of salt in the batter made this dish way too salty.
