Ingredients

Your favorite Sweet and Sour sauce

Chicken or pork tenderloin

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs or pork tenderloin cut into 1”Pieces

1 teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

½ cup flour

½ cup cornstarch

2 large eggs, (beaten)

1 cup water

canola oil, (for frying)

sesame seeds, (for garnish, optional)

green onions, (for garnish, optional)

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the cubed chicken or pork, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat and set aside.

In a second large bowl, combine flour, cornstarch, beaten eggs, and water. Whisk together to form a batter.

Add the cubed chicken or pork pieces to the batter and toss to coat. Marinate for 10 minutes at room temperature.

Add about 2 inches of oil to a large pot. Heat the oil over medium-low heat until the oil reaches 350°F on a candy thermometer or deep-fry thermometer. If you drop a piece of batter into the oil, it should sizzle when it is ready.

When ready, working in batches, slowly drop the marinated chicken or pork in oil and fry until golden brown (3-4 minutes). Drain the chicken or pork on a plate lined with a paper towel and set aside. Continue with the rest of the chicken or pork. (Please note: The oil may need to be heated up to 350°F after each batch of chicken or pork.)

Add the fried chicken or pork to the sweet and sour sauce and toss to coat. Top with sesame seeds and green onions for garnish (optional).
