Sauce ingredients:


In a large bowl combine the chicken, 2 Tbsp soy sauce, 2 Tbsp Mirin, 3 Tbsp cornstarch, and one egg. Mix until combined and set aside. 

In a separate large bowl combine all the sauce ingredients. Whisk and set aside. 

In a large bowl combine the flour, 1/2 cup of cornstarch, baking powder, and a little salt. Dredge the marinated chicken in the flour making sure the pieces are completely coated in flour. 

In a large wok or deep frier add some vegetable oil and heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Fry the chicken in batches for about 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. (Drain on a wire rack or paper towels: Chicken must be cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit internally)

Next in a large pan on medium heat, add 1-2 Tbsp of oil, shallots, garlic, ginger, and chilis. Sauté until translucent and fragrant for about 3-5 minutes. Next add the sauce and constantly stir until thickened. Once the sauce has thickened slightly, turn the heat to low, add the chicken and cover in the sauce. Add the green onion and once heated through you are ready to serve with jasmine rice on the side.
