Honey Ginger Chicken

You can prepare this dish ahead of time by deep-frying the chicken until itís half-cooked. Keep it in the freezer and when ready to cook, thaw out chicken, fry completely until golden and mix with sauce.

Serves 8
Prep and Cooking Time 1 hour and 50 minutes

1 whole chicken, cut into serving pieces
all-purpose flour for dredging

1/3 cup rice wine
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

1 Mix together ingredients for marinade in a bowl.
2 Put in chicken and mix until all the pieces are coated with the marinade. Set aside for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
3 After 1 hour, heat enough oil in pan to deep fry chicken pieces.
4 Coat each piece of chicken in flour before frying.
5 Drain excess oil in paper towels.

2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
3 teaspoons shredded ginger
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup water
chopped spring onions for garnish

1 Mix together all ingredients for the sauce in a wok and boil until thick and syrupy.
2 Toss in chicken pieces in the sauce until well-coated.
3 Garnish with chopped spring onions.

I never deep fry anything, but am thinking - nixing the flour - that this recipe may work quite well with baked chicken wings (or baked chicken pieces period).

I make something similar, but not fried. I brown the chicken and then simmer it in the sauce til the chicken is done. I use maple syrup instead of honey.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
