  • Whisk the egg, cornstarch and flour together with a tablespoon of water. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  • Pour oil into a FD or frying pan to a depth of about 1/2 inch. Heat the oil to about 340F. Sear onions and peppers. Then, Working in batches, drop the chicken into the egg and cornstarch mixture, coating it completely, and then into the oil and fry until golden, about 2 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked. Flip the chicken halfway through cooking. Drain on paper towels
  • Shove the food to one side of the FD and pour the sauce into the pan. Tilt the pan so the sauce can come to a boil and thicken. Once the sauce has come to a boil it will become instantly thick and glossy. Stir everything together to coat with the sauce and heat through.
