  • 2 pounds boneless chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger root
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup


  • First up, cut up your chicken into bite sized pieces and coat with cornstarch.
  • Next up, mix your eggs, salt (optional), pepper, flour and baking powder until no lumps remain. Add your chicken and coat.
  • Then, heat up a skillet or wok on high heat and cook chicken in oil until no longer pink inside. It took me about 10 minutes.
  • Reduce the heat to medium high, and add in sesame oil, scallions, and ginger and cook for one minute.
  • Now add in water, vinegar, sugar, cornstarch, ketchup, and oyster sauce and simmer until the cornstarch has dissolved and the sauce is thick.
  • Stir in chicken and that’s it! Serve with rice and top with more of those tasty scallions.
