This is great! To make it taste like the Chinese restaurant just add red pepper flakes instead of the fire oil. increase the onions by 1 tbls and decrease the vinegar by 50% and the ginger by 25%. And if you can use potato starch rather than corn starch it's not only better for you but it is what the restaurants do too.

Thanks for the recipe (which I will try out!). One stop is confusing to me....can you please clarify?

"Dip chicken in egg mix. Add ¾ cup cornstarch and coat chicken thoroughly."

I am not sure what I am adding the cornstarch to! The egg mix? Or the chicken?

Thanks!

You would dip the chicken in the egg, then dip it in the cornstarch.

This was my first Chinese recipe and it came together really well. I'll make it for my family this weekend.

I agree with Bradley about replacing the hot oil with red pepper and reducing the vinegar for a more 'Chinese-resteraunt' taste. I like ginger, so I left that the same.

Next time I make this I will use much less than 3 tbsp oil in the final step, as this made the result too oily.

Thanks for a great recipe.

Love this recipe! I have celiac disease and I'm always craving those foods I can't have. This recipe really hits the spot. My boyfriend can have gluten but absolutely LOVES this recipe. He likes this recipe more than getting actual Chinese food and requests I make it often. I too used red pepper flakes, but left everything virtually the same. I don't usually measure anything, just do it by taste.

Thanks for sharing such a fantastic recipe.

Why not give up supplements for a while? Not everyone is deficient in vitamins and minerals -- or at least dangerously so. Ask your doctor to check. I take no supplements. My doctor runs a vitamin panel at my yearly check-up. I do make sure my diet is healthy and varied -- like eating vegg...

So to repeat, you will have to do a gluten challenge which is 12 weeks of eating 1 slice of bread per day for the blood tests or 2 weeks of gluten eating for an endoscopy.

I'm celiac for less than 3 months. I'm starting to get concern about getting all the necessary vitamins being gluten free. Recently my joint pain has increased, pulsating pain in my head, and sore areas in legs and neck have started recently. Or course, anxiety too. I'm currently taking...

As far as the grey hair goes, I understand how you feel as I started going seriously grey in my mid 20's also. As cyclinglady stated, there is nothing you can do about that except color you hair or live with the grey hair. I chose to color it. Grey hair is generally either a genetic thing or it...

Lotions used topically are not a concern at all unless they contain gluten and you ingest them into your mouth. Gluten has to get into your GI tract, (which begins in your mouth) for damage to occur. Ditto for hair care products. As most salons have you bend your head back into a sink to wash,...
