Time for some Chinese..........some chicken............. some sauce,.......... some garlic............ spring onion and you are ready to go.... I have made this dish a number of times, and no two times have I used the same proportions for the sauces and no two times has the dish turned out the same,.... but it tasted good every time.... I think its because of the magical blend of the sauces...... Hubby, family ,friends and all love this dish, but I think my SIL Yasmine loves it the most. So Yas this one’s for you.
As a rule, the method is simple. Try it out, and next time you’ll think twice before you order Chinese. Simply because you can make it at home.
So first you are going to need some boneless pieces of chicken. I just keep aside what my folks call the boring pieces of chicken from the one kilo packet . Clean and drain the chicken. They should be flat pieces, making it easier to cook. Beat one egg , add a pinch of salt. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg and then coat with bread crumbs and shallow fry. I try and avoid deep frying. Shallow fry works well here. The bread crumbs will give the chicken a nice crust. Fry till golden brown. The chicken won’t take long to cook. So keep a watch, and keep the flame medium, you don’t want the crumbs to get burnt.
When the chicken has cooked, take it off the pan and place on a kitchen towel to drain out the oil. Use a little of the remaining oil, and fry chopped garlic, green chilly and spring onions. Sauté for a minute or two and then add 2 tbsp tomato hot and sweet sauce, two tbsp soya sauce, 1 tbsp chiili sauce. Mix well. And then add 2 tsp honey. Yes dear, honey. It’s gonna give you the sweetest tasting chicken. Taste the sauce, see if you would want to add more salt or a little more of any of the sauces. One thing to keep in mind while using sauces, is that most of them contain salt already. So taste the blend of sauces before you add salt. Once you’re happy with the taste of the sauce, toss in the chicken and coat it well with the sauce. Sprinkle spring onion greens to garnish.And now you know, you can make good Chinese food
