  • 1 lb. chicken breast cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 ½ tablespoons water


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 piece egg
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cups cooking oil

Honey Sauce

  • 5 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  • In a bowl, stir in chicken, salt, ginger powder, garlic powder, pepper and water. Marinate the chicken cubes for 10 minutes.
  • Make the Frying Batter. In a large bowl, whisk in together all the batter ingredients. Continue whisking until the batter is smooth.
  • Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Add the marinated chicken into the batter. Mix it well until all chicken is covered with batter.
  • Heat up a pan and add about 2 cups of oil on medium to high heat. When the oil is fully heated, gently drop in the battered chicken cubes, one at a time, making sure they are not sticking together. Continue frying for about 7 top 8 minutes or until the color changes to golden brown.
  • In a pan, pour in the honey sauce mixture. Let it boil then toss in the fried chicken cubes. Add toasted sesame seeds. Mix well.
  • Serve hot. Share and enjoy!
