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

Prep and Cooking Time 1 hour and 50 minutes

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

For the marinade
1/3 cup rice wine
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

For the sauce
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

Mix together ingredients for marinade in a bowl.

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.

Drain excess oil in paper towels.

6  Make the sauce: Mix together all ingredients for the sauce in a wok and boil until thick and syrupy.

Toss in chicken pieces in the sauce until well-coated.

8  Garnish with chopped spring onions. Serve immediately.
