Firecracker Chicken

Serves 4


  • For the chicken: In a large bowl, season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the cornstarch and toss well to coat. In a medium bowl, crack the eggs and whisk to combine.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, dip each piece of chicken into the egg and then add to the skillet.
  • Cook the chicken, turning a few times, until each piece is evenly golden brown and fully cooked, 7 to 9 minutes.
  • For the Sauce: Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the sriracha, rice vinegar, brown sugar, crushed red-pepper flakes and half of the scallions. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly, and cook for 1 minute; remove from the heat.
  • When the chicken is done cooking, transfer it from the pan to a large bowl. Add the sauce, and toss well to combine.
  • Garnish with the sesame seeds and remaining scallions. Serve with the rice.
