no, never made it. not big on battered/fried foods, but i will look around my usual foodie sites for it.
in case anyone else can help, it is a doughy batter, like on a corn dog or as i said, battered fried shrimp.

If you want the breading sort of thick (like tempura) you need baking powder to make it puff up. Like in this recipe for sesame chicken. It's a common technique.

Less puffy is something like this Genral Gau/Tso's recipe

If you just want crispy, then cornstarch is all you need.

If you noodle around the internet, you'll find loads of breaded and fried chinese chicken recipes. Here's one for Sweet and Sour .

You're welcome, texas. I've saved it to my files as well. Didn't know it was so easy to make at home.
