READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Chicken:.
  • Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and then dredge in flour. Set aside and let stand for 15 minutes.
  • Mix eggs, milk, remaining salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl.
  • Place floured chicken into egg mixture and let sit for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken and roll the pieces in flour again.
  • Deep fry 350 degrees for 4-5 minutes until chicken is cooked and golden brown. (Other oil may be substituted, but the peanut oil will give the best color and texture.).
  • Sauce:.
  • Bring water to a boil and then dissolve bouillon granules.
  • Remove 1/4 cup of the bouillon and cool in the fridge. Add cornstarch to cooled liquid and mix until smooth.
  • Add sugar, salt, and oyster sauce to the boiling liquid.
  • Slowly add the cornstarch mixture to the hot liquid and cook at a low boil, allowing to thicken.
  • Serve chicken over steamed white (or fried) rice. Pour sauce on top and garnish with cashews and green onions.
