 Ingredients List

  • 4 Chicken legs
  • 1/2 c Soy sauce
  • 1/2 c Distilled white vinegar
  • 1 cl Garlic; minced
  • 1 ts Ginger root; Peeled & minced
  • 1 ts Cornstarch
  • 1 lg Egg; beaten lightly
  • 1/3 c Corn oil
  • 4 Dried hot chilis; seeded


Bone the chicken legs, including the thighs by scraping the meat from the
bone, working downward and keeping close to the bone. Pull the meat down
over the bone (pulling it inside out like a glove) and cut it free from the
bone. Discard the skin and cut the meat from each leg into 6 pieces. In a
bowl combine the soy sauce, vinegar, 1/2 c water, the garlic and ginger

In another bowl, combine the egg and cornstarch and dip the chicken pieces.
Heat the oil in a wok or deep, heavy skillet until very hot, add the
chicken and fry it for 4 to 6 minutes, or until it is crisp. Transfer the
chicken with tongs to paper towels to drain and pour off all but 1 T of the
oil from the wok. Add the soy sauce mixture, the chili peppers and the
chicken and cook the mixture over moderately high heat for 2 minutes, or
until heated through.

Transfer it to a heated serving dish.
