Popcorn Chicken

Fried chicken is a dish consisting of chicken pieces usually from broiler chickens which have been floured or battered and then pan-fried, deep fried, or pressure fried. The breading adds a crisp coating or crust to the exterior. Usage of egg enables the coating of flour and makes it crispy when fried. In this recipe, I use pork as I will be making sweet and sour pork in the other recipe. See recipe here. 


  1. 200g pork loin, cut into 1.5cm cubes
  2. 300ml oil
  3. light soya sauce, to taste
  4. black pepper
  5. 3g salt
  6. 1 egg, beaten
  7. plain flour
  8. cornstarch


  1. Marinate the pork loin cubes with light soya sauce, black pepper, salt, cornstarch and 1 tbsp oil for about 30 minutes. 里脊肉切1.5cm见方的块,加生抽1汤匙(15ml),黑胡椒粉少许,盐3g,淀粉3g,油1汤匙(15ml)腌制30分钟。
  2. Dip the marinated meat into the beaten egg and coat with plain flour. Make sure that the meat does not coat extra flour that it can. Under medium heat, fry the coated meat cubes for about 5-7 minutes or till cooked. Sieve and serve. 腌好的肉加打匀的鸡蛋,拌匀。把肉块在面粉里滚一圈,使其均匀的粘一层面粉。放在筛网里抖掉多余的粉。过油中火炸5-7分钟至熟。
