Fried Chicken (Chinese Style)

Recipe by WizzyTheStick

This is a staple fast food in Trinidad Chinese take out restaurants. Highly addictive. I posted this recipe without trying. Now that I have tried it, I must agree with the first reviewer that it was too salty. I have adjusted the salt. It is supposed to be a little bit salty but if you prefer you can use even less.

Sorry de Roache but this was *way* too salty for our liking. If I make again I would definitely leave out the salt and just rely on the soy and the oyster sauce. For dietary reasons I cut back on the frying oil. I have Trini friends here in Australia and hoped to copy a recipe of theirs but unfortunately this one wasn't the one.
