DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, combine cornstarch and water into a smooth batter.
  • Add chicken slices and stir to coat thoroughly.
  • In another bowl, combine pepper flakes, garlic, ginger, honey, green onion, sugar and vinegar.
  • In a wok, heat vegetable oil until very hot.
  • Add chicken; stir and cook for a few minutes until the chicken turns golden brown.
  • Remove the chicken, set it aside and allow it to drain.
  • Into a heat-proof container, carefully pour off all the oil from the wok, except one teaspoon.
  • Return the wok to high heat and add the sauce mixture; stir frequently and cook until the sauce begins to caramelize (it will turn a light golden-brown colour; watch carefully and work quickly, because the sugar can easily burn).
  • Add the chicken, and toss to coat well with sauce.
  • Place on a serving plate, and garnish with sesame seeds.
