Recipe's preparation

  1. This recipe requires time and prep and it makes a lot but it is very much worth it! I reccommend dicing the chicken and making the batter early. Also if you plan to have it with fried rice make that ahead of time to.

    1. Cut the chicken breast into cubes - not to small as the batter will burn before the chicken is cooked. Set aside.
    2. Add the water and egg to the mixing bowl and mix 10 sec speed 5.
    3. Add the Self raising flour, salt & pepper to the mixing bowl and mix 30sec, speed 5 until a smooth batter.
    4. Pour batter into a large bowl and set aside.
    5. Add oil to a large pan, deep enough to shallow fry or deep fry at 180degrees.
    6. While oil is heating, coat the chicken in corn flour and then dip into the batter and place straight into hot oil.
    7. Place a few pieces in at a time.
    8. Turn chicken until golden brown and cooked. Test a piece to ensure all is cooked.
    9. remove chicken onto a tray - you can keep in a low oven to keep hot.
    10. Once you have fried all the chicken, have it next to you while you make the honey sauce as you need to work quickly.
    11. Place honey and oil into a large pan on a medium heat and gently simmer. Stirring as it simmers. Once it bubbles, put the chicken in to the fry pan and gently mix so the chicken gets coated in honey sauce. Don't be to rough or the batter will come off.
    12. Once all done coat with sesame seeds and serve with rice immediatly, Enjoy!
