FOR GARNISH

  • 1/4 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 2 basil leaves, chopped

PROCEDURE

  • Wash chicken breast thoroughly to rid it of excess blood. Cut in bite-size chunks and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, add egg whites and cornstarch, whisk together with a fork until a froth is formed, about 45 seconds. Then add chicken breast and allow to sit for 10 minutes.

  • While the chicken is sitting pretty in the mixture, heat up vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium heat.
  • Carefully drop the chicken into the oil. Be careful not to over crowd the pan so the temperature of the oil doesn’t drop. Move the chicken around so they fry evenly. When it is nice and golden brown, place them on a plate lined with paper towel to drain the excess oil. Repeat the process for the remaining chicken pieces.

  • Afterwards, in a non-stick skillet, add orange juice, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, crushed chili flakes, garlic and salt to taste, place on medium heat and bring to a light simmer, allow to cook until sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, make a slurry by whisking together cornstarch and 1/4 cups of water. Then add 2 table spoons of the slurry to the sauce. Stir to combine and leave to thicken for another minute.
  • Finally, transfer the fried chicken chunks into the sauce, toss to thoroughly coat chicken with the sauce.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and fresh basil leaves.
  • You can serve this alone or with pasta, steamed basmati rice and steamed vegetables.
