Tips for Chicken

Instructions

  1. 1Toss the chicken in the cornstarch to lightly coat the meat.
  2. 2Heat a wok or large sauté pan over high heat, then add canola oil and heat until shimmering. Add the chicken and flash fry for 30 to 60 seconds, or until crispy and golden brown. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels.
  3. 3Add garlic to pan and stir-fry for about 30 seconds, then add ginger and stir-fry for about 30 seconds more, and then add green chilies and stir-fry for another 10 to 20 seconds. Add sambal oelek, soy sauce, and honey to the pan and stir to combine. Add the cornstarch-water slurry and stir for about 30 seconds or until sauce is slightly thickened and shiny. Add the flash-fried chicken to the sauce and stir-fry for 3 minutes, until cooked through and coated with sauce.
  4. 4Turn the chicken out of the pan onto a serving platter and scrape remaining sauce on top. Garnish with scallions, radish, and/or cilantro, and serve.
