Fried chicken with honey sauce.

I like Chinese food, but in England hasn't found a good chainese takeaway yet ;( Sometimes you can go crazy and prepare something not very healthy at home... And that's how it was with this chicken :P 
The meat is soft with crunchy coat in sweet and salty sauce ... tasty :)


- For the marinade: 

* 120 ml broth, 
* 60 ml soy sauce, 
* 40 ml liquid honey, 
* 25 ml rice vinegar, 
* 2 tbsp brown sugar, 
* 1 tbsp cornstarch,
* 1 tsp sesame oil, 
* 2 chicken breasts, cut into large cubes, 

- For the sauce: 

* 1 tbsp sesame oil 
* 2 cloves garlic, minced, 
* 1 tbsp grated ginger, 
* pinch chili flakes, 
* 2 tbsp clear honey,

- For the coat: 

* 1 egg white, 
* 3/4 cup cornstarch, 
* 1/4 cup all purpose flour, 
* 1/2 tspn baking soda,

* oil for frying 
* sesame seeds for sprinkling, 

* handful chopped spring onions,



All the marinade ingredients mix in a bowl, cover with foil or lid and let stand overnight in the refrigerator.
Pour 40 ml marinade ( for sauce ). 
Do not pour the marinade.

When meat is ready.

In small pan, heat the tablespoon of sesame oil nad fry for 2 minutes, garlic, ginger, a pinch of chili flakes add the reserved marinade and honey.
Cook for a few minutes until the sauce thickens and darker.
Remove from heat and set aside.


Mix corn flour with all purpose flour and baking soda .
Egg white whisk to stiff foam .
Mix flour, gradually adding the marinade from chicken until the appropriate thicknes - the dough should be a little more dense than for pancakes.

In a small saucepan , heat the large amount of oil ( about 5 cm) .

Dry chicken pieces  with paper towel, split into two parts and toss with egg whites and then in the dough.
Fry the chicken putting a few chicken pieces at the time, turning frequently until they are lighty brown.
