    Honeybeee's Note:

    Prep time includes marination time. A permanent item on the table when the flavor is Chinese! It freezes well, although there's never ever left to do so! Also, as a variation, I often follow the recipe till the marination and frying, while omitting the rest, and serve them as chicken fritters for snacks. Goes very well with drinks too!

      This was excellent!! Of course, I changed a few things, like four breasts to eight thighs and one shallot to two green onions, but it was still yummy! It was easy to prepare and not expense at all to prepare. The chillies are what sold it for me and my husband. They gave it a spicy zing that was always missing from our stir fry. This is the first recipe I have tried from here and if they are all this good, I can't wait for my next cooking adventure!!

      Great recipe, I however made some changes, replaced the shallots with a small diced red onion and 2 spring onions, and replaced green for red peppers to add some colour.<br/><br/>The only thing I'd warn about, if pan frying rather than deep frying the chicken give yourself some extra time and cut the chicken into smaller pieces.
