This very Chinese appearance recipe, however, is completely unknown in China. Surprising as it may seem, it comes from the United States … But was invented by a Chinese immigrant, Mr Peng Chang-kuei. This does not prevent not to be very tasty. These are small fried chicken, fried twice for a crunchy texture, and revenue in acidic and sweet sauce, hot pepper if desired. I enjoy every time I order this dish there.

When all the chicken is cooked, put oil on fire this time rather lively. The oil should be hot. Immerse the chicken pieces for this time they are completely golden. The more they are golden and crispy long they will stay with the sauce. The thigh is not afraid of prolonged cooking, so you can really cook those little donuts.

Council Bernard: we really cook the donuts that they retain their crisp texture in contact with the sauce. We should even cook more than in the picture below. You really put this sauce just before serving to enjoy them as quickly as possible !!
