Ingredients

Ingredients for 4 servings
  • 1 1/2 pounds (680 g) boneless, skinless,
  • chicken breasts, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 1 cup (130 g) 3 tbsp. Welna Tempura Batter Mix
  • Tempurako, divided
  • 1 cup (216 g) vegetable oil for frying
  • 1/2 tsp. sesame seeds
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

 

For the marinade:

  • 1 cup (240 ml) chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
  • 1/3 cup (80 ml) distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp. orange zest
  • 1 tsp. sriracha, or more, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper

Directions

  1.  To make the marinade, whisk together chicken broth, orange juice, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, orange zest, sriracha, ginger and white pepper in a large bowl.
  2. In a gallon size plastic bag or large bowl, combine chicken and 2/3 cup of the marinade and let them stand for at least 30 minutes.
  3. 3 tablespoons Welna Tempura Batter Mix combined with 3 tablespoons water, add to remaining marinade and mix well. Heat the mixture in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Keep stirring and bring to boil and cook until thickened about 1-2 minutes, keep warm.
  4.  Drain and discard the excess marinade liquid from the chicken. Dredge the chicken with 1 cup of Welna Tempura Batter Mix, shake off the excess Welna Tempura Batter Mix.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a large saucepan. Working in batches, add chicken and fry until golden brown and cook through, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
