DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flour into the mixing bowl, along with the cornstarch and baking powder to make the batter.
  • Add the vegetable oil and stir in just barely enough water to make a smooth, thick batter, which will yield about 3/4 cup.
  • Put the wok on the stove and pour roughly 2/3 cup of vegetable oil into it, then heat until almost smoking.
  • After it is almost smoking, lower the heat slightly.
  • Then dip the pieces of chicken into the batter and cover them in the batter.
  • After they are covered in batter, cook them in the wok for 2-3 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • It's acceptable to do the chicken in batches instead of all at once.
  • Remove chicken from the wok with a slotted spoon and keep it warm, I'd recommend keeping it in the oven until it is needed.
  • Drain all but roughly 1 tablespoon of oil from the wok.
  • Add the bell pepper, pineapple pieces, onion, bamboo shoots, and carrot to the wok, and then stir-fry it for 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove the vegetables from the wok with a slotted spoon and set them aside for now.
  • Mix all the sauce ingredients together until they are combined, and then pour the sauce into the wok.
  • Bring the wok to a boil and stir the sauce until it is thick and clear.
  • Cook it for about 1 minute, then return the chicken and vegetables to the wok.
  • Cook all of this for 1-2 more minutes, and then serve with rice or noodles.
