I have made many variations of chinese takeout and I have to say by far this one was the most delicious. The sauce was perfect, the chicken had a wonderful crunch to it. I didn't add the chicken all at once to the sauce, rather, I did it as each family member was ready for their portion. If you want to keep chicken a little crispy, I suggest not mixing all together with the sauce, including the leftovers. Whole family thought was delicious and I have a VERY picky teen boy diner.
I consider myself quite a good cook and I have to say, this was fun to make. The mixture of cornstarch, sesame oil and soy sauce created a very sticky paste for the chicken. I got it everywhere! Use a spatula to mix and tongs to put the pieces into the oil. My son gives it 2 thumbs up.
Quite good and easy to make. I made as directed except I didn't have scallions and I used ginger from a tube. Served with sauteed green cabbage in stead of rice.
