What's underneath the coating of my take-out Chinese chicken? Do I want to know???

Every weekend I shop at my favourite Asian supermarket... In addition to their amazing grocery and meat selection and prices, they have the best prepared foods counter.

I've always been a sucker for coated, fried and saucy chicken dishes (lemon chicken, General Tso, honey chicken, spicy chicken), and leave every week with one of their "specials" in hand.

The problem is, as tasty as they are, more often than not, the pieces look undiscernable... Rather than being plump, uniform chicken breast chunks, many are long, twisty and grisly-looking bits, some could pass for ears! I try not to look at what's inside after I bite into it.

I know that preparing my own is the best option, but I'm kinda busy... Are there any poster's who can assure (or warn) me just what kind of chicken I'm eating... When you can't see what's inside, how do you know... what's inside???
