DIRECTIONS

  • Make a batter with flour, cornflour and water. You need about two-thirds flour and one-third cornflour. Mix with water to the consistency of double cream.
  • Stir in the chicken strips until they are evenly coated.
  • Heat oil in a wok or deep-fryer. The oil should be deep enough to completely cover the pieces of chicken when they are put in it.
  • Once the oil is hot (test by dropping in some of the batter off a teaspoon - it should rise quickly to the surface sizzling gently), add the pieces of chicken a few at a time and fry until golden-brown. You will need to do this in several batches. As each batch is cooked, put to one side to drain.
  • Take a clean wok and heat a couple of tablespoons of oil in it.
  • When hot, add the onions, pepper and chilli and stir fried for a couple of minutes until the onion starts to turn translucent.
  • Add the fried chicken strips and stir thoroughly for a minute or two.
  • Stir in a generous quantity of sea salt and ground black pepper.
  • Serve immediately with rice and vegetables.
