DIRECTIONS

  • Cut chicken breast into 1/2-inch cubes; set aside.
  • Make marinade: Combine egg white, salt and sugar in a bowl and stir vigorously until ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  • Add chicken cubes to marinade and stir to coat well.
  • Let marinate while preparing the sauce.
  • Make orange sauce: In a bowl, combine water, ketchup, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, 4 teaspoons cornstarch and sesame oil; stir and set aside.
  • Place a pot over high heat. When pot is hot, add the 2 tablespoons vegetable oil and heat.
  • Add orange peel and scallion and stir for about 20 seconds, taking care not to burn the orange peel.
  • Pour combined sauce ingredients into the pot and cook, stirring frequently, until sauce has thickened, about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • To finish: Preheat 4 cups oil to 350-375°F.
  • Meanwhile, put marinated chicken in the plastic baggie containing the cornstarch.
  • Shake chicken well for about 20 seconds or until chicken is covered with cornstarch.
  • Shake off all excess cornstarch and fry chicken in hot oil until golden brown, approximately 2 1/2 minutes.
  • Remove chicken from oil with a slotted spoon, drain well and set aside.
  • Add fried chicken to pot with heated orange sauce, stir for about 30 seconds, then serve immediately.
  • Serve with steamed rice.
