Method

In a bowl, mix the vinegar and soy sauce together, then add the chicken. Marinate for 20 minutes.

In a clean bowl, whisk the egg and cornflour together to form a smooth batter.

Dip the chicken in the batter and turn to coat. Remove from the batter and allow any excess to drip back into the bowl. Pour the oil in a pan over medium heat, then fry the chicken until golden brown and cooked. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a plate lined with paper towel.

SAUCE

In a medium saucepan over a high heat, combine the stock, soy sauce, salt and pepper, vinegar, caster sugar and tomato sauce. When the mixture starts to boil, reduce the heat slightly, then add the peppers and spring onions. Cook for 4 minutes. In a small cup, mix the cornflour with 15 ml (1 tbsp) water and add this to the saucepan.

Add the fried chicken to the saucepan to heat it then serve with cooked rice while it’s still hot.
