DIRECTIONS

  • Marinade:
  • Mix all the ingredients together.
  • Chicken:
  • Trim off all the yellow fat from the chicken.
  • Prick it all over with a fork.
  • Rub the salt and pepper into the chicken.
  • Marinate the chicken for about 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oil for deep frying in a wok or deep pan.
  • Dry the chicken with the kitchen paper.
  • Coat the chicken with the corn starch.
  • Shake off any extra corn starch.
  • Deep fry until nice and golden colour and cooked through.
  • We can tell by how it feels, but you might check it with a skewer and see that no red juices are running.
