Cook: 20 mins
Total: 35 mins


  • 1 egg, beaten
  • tbsp all-purpose flour
  • tbsp corn flour
  • salt, 1 pinch, to taste
  • ground black pepper, 1 pinch, to taste
  • 1 lb chicken, cut into cubes
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger root, crushed
  • 2 tbsp garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 serrano chile peppers, cut into ¼-inch pieces, or more to taste
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • ¼ tsp white sugar
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp monosodium glutamate, (such as Ajinomoto®) (Optional)
  • ½ green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tbsp corn flour


  1. Beat egg in a large bowl. Mix all-purpose flour and 1½ tablespoons of corn flour into egg until batter is smooth; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Dip chicken into batter, working in batches, until coated; place on a plate in a single layer so the pieces do not touch.

  3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; add enough vegetable oil to reach about ½-inch depth. Fry battered chicken, working in batches, in the hot oil until no longer pink in the center.

  4. Transfer cooked chicken, using a slotted spoon, to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

  5. Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in skillet over medium heat; cook and stir ginger and garlic until lightly browned. Add cilantro and serrano peppers; reduce heat to medium-low.

  6. Mix chicken stock, soy sauce, sugar, black pepper, and monosodium glutamate into garlic-ginger mixture; cook and stir until sauce is heated through.

  7. Add green bell pepper to sauce and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until slightly tender.

  8. Whisk water and 2 tablespoons corn flour together in a bowl until smooth; stir into sauce until incorporated. Bring sauce to a boil. Add chicken and stir to coat.

  9. Serve and enjoy!
