    ½ tsp salt
    Pinch of white pepper
    1 egg
    ½ cup all-purpose flour
    ½ cup flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    Oil for frying
    Sesame seeds, toasted

    Sauce:
    ½ tsp ginger, grated

    2 tbsp brown sugar
    1 tsp rice vinegar
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    ½ cup chicken stock
    2 tsp corn flour
    ½ tbsp sesame oil

METHOD

1. Mix together ingredients for sauce. Set it aside.

2. Cut chicken breast into bite-sized pieces. Season with salt & pepper and crack in egg and give it a good stir. Add in all-purpose flour and corn flour and mix thoroughly.

Gently stir to ensure every bit of chicken is coated in the sauce.
