This fried chicken recipe takes everything you love about Chinese food and makes it American. The combination of ginger and soy have long been used in Chinese food for good reason. The same thing goes for fried chicken in America. So two great tastes that go great together.
2 1/2 lbs chicken breast boneless/skinless
1 cup soy sauce
3 tbs ginger minced
4 medium shallots sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup toasted sesame oil
3 clove garlic chopped
2 tbs black pepper
1 cup rice flour
1 cup corn starch
pure olive oil for frying
1. In a large bowl combine the soy, ginger, shallot, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic and black pepper, stir to combine well.
2. Place the chicken in the marinade and refrigerate for 4 hours.
3. Combine the flour and cornstarch. Drain the chicken and reserve the marinade for latter use.
4. Coat the chicken in the flour mixture and fry in the olive oil heated to 350-degree for about 5 minutes or until chicken becomes brown and crispy
5. Drain and serve.
Chef’s Notes: This chicken is great for salads! For a low fat version omit the frying and grill it over a medium hot grill, 5 minutes each side.[/private]
