We are extremely fond of The General..I have 3 recipes I love..wait..make that 4 now!
Les Gourmandises D'Isa.. a site that always makes me want to get up and make what she is sharing:)I had lost the link and found it again..in the nick of time.. inspired me to try her recipe..
Most of mine don't have batters per say..this one does..but it's light enough and not deep fried either..Very rarely do we fry..and never in winter..just outside in summer w/ the fryer..
Coconut shrimps.. zucchini blossoms..
Delicious.. but we are being careful..about fried foods and eat them seldomly.
So again..not deep fried.. and absolutely delicious if you like sweet meat like we do..
Translated.. You must accept my apologies for my quick translations.I type so slowly.. w/ 2 fingers.. so..I translate quickly:)
For 6-8 people
2 lbs of chicken breasts cubed
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 beaten eggs
1/2 cup flour
2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/cup veg oil
2 tsps sesame oil
1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
3 spring green onions bias cut
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tbsps corn starch
1/4 cup light soya sauce
1/2 cup chili sauce.
Coat the cubed chicken in corn starch.
In a bowl mix eggs,flour,baking powder and salt..add the chicken cubes and coat well.
In a pan heat oil on high and start cooking the chicken a bit at a time so the pieces do not overlap and cook well.
Cook for ap 10 mins or until browned on the outside and no longer pink inside.
On medium heat mix sesame oil..chopped spring green onions and ginger..sauté 3 mins ap.. add water and maple syrup and cook 1 more minute.
Meanwhile mix cornstarch ,soya sauce and chili sauce.. add to the pot and cook until thickened.Add the browned meat and coat well..
I served it with rice..
I also added Sechuan peppercorns and a touch of hot chili sauce,as we like our General to have a kick.
It was very very good.
I hope you enjoy it..
Girls..you will both like this one:)
