250 grams (0.55 lb) chicken breast

150 grams (0.33 lb) shelled walnuts

500 grams (1 cup) oil (only 75 g or 75 tbsp to be consumed)

1 egg white

12 grams (1 2/3 tbsp) dry cornstarch

4 grams (2/3 tsp) salt

2 grams (1/2 tsp) MSG

5 grams (1/6 oz) scallions

10 grams (1/3 oz) ginger

5 grams (1/6 oz) dried red chilis

75 grams (1 tsp) cooking wine


1. Beat the chicken breast with the side of a chicken knife to soften the texture of the meat. Make light cross-cuts on the meat. Cut the meat into cubes 1.5 cm (0.6 inch) wide each side. Place in a bowl, add the egg white, 2 g (1/3 tsp) of salt and 10 g (1 1/2 tbsp) of dry cornstarch and mix well. Mix the remaining cornstarch with water. Soak the walnuts in ukewarm water, remove the fine skin and deep-fry. Drain off the oil. Cut the scallions into sections 1 cm (0.4 inch) long. Cut the ginger into small thin slices the size of finger nails. Reduce the red chilis into sections 1 cm (0.4 inch) long.

2. Heat the oil over strong fire to bring the temperature to 70-100 degrees Celsius (160-210 degrees Fahrenheit) and slippery-fry the chicken cubes for 1-2 minutes. Take out and drain off the oil in a strainer.

3. Put 25 g (1 2/3 tbsp) of oil in the wok and stir-fry the scallions, ginger and red chilis until they produce a strong aroma. Add the cooking wine, water, salt and MSG and bring to a boil. Thicken with the mixture of cornstarch and water. Put in the chicken and walnuts and turn several times. Sprinkle on a few drops of sesame oil and take out to serve.
