Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb chicken breast boneless and skinless and cut into thin long strips

For chicken breading

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

For Sauce

Instructions

  • Whisk the eggs in a shallow plate. In another shallow plate whisk together all the breading ingredients.
  • Dip the chicken pieces in the egg wash then dredge them through the flour and make sure each piece is fully coated in flour.
  • Fill a Dutch oven or a deep frying pan with vegetable oil, about 1 1/2 inches deep and heat. When the oil is hot, add chicken to the pan, a few at a time, and fry it for about 3 or 4 minutes until it's golden brown, make sure the chicken is cooked inside. Repeat this until all the chicken is fried.
