– large orange – water – Shaoxing wine – rice vinegar – soy sauce – oyster sauce

In a medium-sized bowl add the orange zest, orange juice, water, Shaoxing wine, rice vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and optional chili flakes and mix to combine. Set it to the side.

Cut the chicken into roughly 1-inch cubes. Place them in a large bowl. In the bowl with the chicken add in the Shaoxing wine, sesame oil, water, and eggs and mix until thoroughly combined.

Next, mix in the corn starch, flour, salt, and white pepper until combined. It should be a wet batter like tempura.

Add about 1 cup or so of cooking oil to a large wok or non-stick skillet and heat over medium heat until it reaches 350°.

Place in individual battered chicken pieces at a time until the pan is full without getting the chicken to close to one another to avoid clumping.
