DIRECTIONS

  • Note: This recipe calls for boneless thigh meat, which is preferred, but I tried using breast meat and the result was fine also.
  • Mix together sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Cut chicken into a small dice, about 1/4-inch.
  • Heat 1-2 cups peanut or other cooking oil in your wok.
  • Place cornstarch in a small bowl and begin to dust chicken pieces, shaking off excess.
  • Fry in hot oil in small batches until crispy and golden, about 2-3 minutes; drain.
  • Remove oil from wok and discard.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in wok and stir-fry onion about 1 minute; add peas and carrots and cook another 30 seconds.
  • Add sauce mixture to wok along with chicken pieces and stir to coat everything evenly.
  • Serve at once with hot steamed rice.

“For Shae, who discovered this on a Chinese buffet. I had found this on a buffet also. It is a great little dish, with a little bite of pepper that is quite addictive!”
