Crispy Hot Sweet & Sour Chicken

Fantastic Chinese Takeaway, homemade !

In this recipe, the marinade of the chicken pieces gives them a lot of flavor. The sauce that will top them, once cooked, is also very fragrant. The final dish will result extra tasty. In terms of textures, you will enjoy a very tender chicken because it is protected during cooking by a crust, and the latter will be crispy. As for the sauce, the malt syrup (can be found in Asian grocery stores) makes it thick and syrupy. You can replace the malt syrup with glucose syrup, which can be found in the cake ingredients section in all grocery stores. If you don't want to use either, malt syrup or glucose syrup, then when cooking the sauce, increase the amount of cornstarch, add ½ tbsp instead of 1 tsp. You can also use 1 tbsp of honey instead.
If the chili paste is too hot for your taste, replace it with 1 tbsp of sweet chili powder. Serve with Jasmine rice and blanched vegetables or salad, which you can season with the chicken sauce. Bon appétit.
