Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 3 - 4 chicken breasts or 6 boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces 
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika


  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil 
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  2. Heat the oil in a skillet or wok. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Dip the chicken into the egg and then into the flour mixture. Add to the hot oil and cook until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 6 to 7 minutes. Remove chicken to a paper towel.
