Chinese Honey Chicken Recipe

I got this recipe off Blog Chef.net. Its really yummy. You can definitely taste the ginger but its not overpowering.

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1” chunks)
Oil

Batter-
4 tablespoons cornstarch
¼ cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup water
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 egg white

Sauce-
1 ½ tablespoons oil
2 teaspoon ginger (minced)
3 tablespoons garlic (minced)
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
½ cup water
1 teaspoon cornstarch (mixed with 1 teaspoon water)
Sesame seeds (for garnish)

In a large bowl mix all batter ingredients together until smooth. Cover and allow the batter to sit for at least 30 minutes. Add the chicken to the batter, toss to coat.

Add oil to frying pan and heat. Fry chicken bits in batches until it is done. Drain on paper towels.

Sauce: Drain pan of oil except 1 1/2 Tbsp. Add garlic and ginger and stir fry for 30 seconds. Add salt, honey, vinegar, and water. Mix well. Combine 1 teaspoon of water with 1 teaspoon of cornstarch. Add to the sauce and simmer for 2 minutes. When the sauce is thickened and bubbly add the chicken back into the pan and coat with the sauce.

Serve with white rice garnish with sesame seeds.
