Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine ingredients-chicken through pepper- and mix well. Pour about 1/2" peanut oil in a heavy skillet. Heat to medium high heat. Drop chicken mixture by teaspoonfuls into hot oil. Reduce heat to medium-low and fry the chicken bites for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.
  2. In a small saucepan, saute scallions in the sesame oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer until flavors are incorporated. Simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour and stir well. Adjust seasonings to taste. If the mixture is too thick, add a little hot water to make desired consistency.

I think that this tastes like a chicken egg roll without the egg roll part. My kids and husband loved it and so did I. I didn't bother making the dipping sauce and instead used my old chicken egg roll "dip" standby, Grey Poupon Country Dijon Mustard. Yup, I'll definitely be repeating this recipe in the future....thank you!

Excellent! DS is allergic to peanuts so I used olive and I was out of hoisen sauce so I kinda made something up but it was really really good.

These tastes like chicken dumplings without the wanton wrappers. Mixed some ground nuts in the mixture since we didn't have the peanut oil. Dipping sauce was good, although I think DH might have placed more than a tbsp flour hence the thickness. Made 2 kinds of sauces, as is and w/ an added sweet chili sauce. Both sauces were good w/ this crunchy chicken bites. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe. DH also gives this a 5.:) He now thinks he's a good cook basing on the success of this recipe. lol
