How to Chinese take out sweet and sour chicken breading?

fldhkybnva | Oct 24, 2012 11:50 AM

I have to admit that I love the chicken balls at Chinese takeout that you dip in the fluorescent red/orange sauce (please leave judgment aside :). I was just wondering I have never seen any other breaded food with a similar breading coat. How do they get the breading to puff up like it's a "jacket" on the chicken rather than adherent to it (think: standard fried chicken, fried fish, etc.)

Thanks.
