chinese-chickenWhen I first read this recipe it sounded really strange but was really delicious and unlike anything else I have tasted in any Chinese restaurant before. I am a big fan of Chinese food with Mr Chan on Seapoint Main Rd being my alltime favorite restaurant. It has a really rich flavor and best served with plain steamed rice, very simple and fast recipe.(4 people)

What you need

1.5kg chicken thighs in bite size pieces
3 egg yolks lightly beaten
1/2 cup All gold tomato sauce
1/2 cup red wine
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
Oil for deep frying

The process

Lightly beat the egg yolks, and set a wok on medium high with oil for deep frying

Mix together the tomato sauce, wine and soy sauce in a seperate bowl and set aside.

Place all of the chicken pieces into the egg yolk and mix around to coat thoroughly.

Take individual pieces of chicken from the egg and place into the oil.(you want each piece to be separate) Do this in small batches, until all all of the chicken is golden brown, remove from oil and drain on kitchen paper.

Remove all of the oil of the wok and wipe down. Place the sauce into the wik and bring to the boil, allowing it to boil for about a minute and reduce slightly.

Toss all of the chicken pieces into the sauce, mix well to coat and heat through.

Serve immediately.
