  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar.
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 clove garlic, minced.
  • 1 teaspoon red chili paste.


Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes


Take a large bowl and add flour, dry sherry, baking powder, baking soda, 2 tbsps., soy sauce, 2 tbsps., cornstarch, 2 tbsps., water and canola oil in it. Prepare a good marinade and add chicken in the bowl. Cover the chicken in marinating and place the bowl in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

Take a red copper pan and heat oil at 190 degrees Celsius or 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure the pan is branded because only a branded pan can withstand high temperature. You can check out red copper pan reviews in order to find the right red copper pan for your day-to-day use.

Take a small pan now, and add chicken broth, 2 tbsps., soy sauce, ½ cup water, red chili paste, 2 tbsps., sesame oil, vinegar, sugar, garlic and ¼ cup cornstarch in it. Bring the pan to boil, but make sure to stir the pan constantly. Once the ingredients come to boil, reduce the flame and let it cook. But, make sure to stir the pan occasionally.

Fry marinated chicken in batches now and cook it until it is cooked and turns golden brown. It will take 3-5 minutes.

Once cooked, take the chicken out and drain it on paper towels.

Pour the chicken to a large platter and add the sauce on the top. Season it with sesame seeds.

The dish is ready and you can now enjoy it with your family or alone (depends upon your hunger level). You must have had chicken a countless number of times, but this dish is going to make you fall in love with chicken all over again. The change is brought by the sauce, as the ingredients that we added to make the sauce have different flavors. Try this recipe today and share your experience with us.
