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.

At school I've always used liquitex acrylic. Cleans up with water if you clean it immediately. And yes, paint inside. make sure to share pictures!

If this continues for more than another day or so get to your doctor. Go now if you are showing signs of dehydration. Hospitals are full of nasty bacteria and viruses you need to make sure that you haven't picked up something. I hope this resolves for you soon.

There is special transparent paint that you can get for glass. You should be able to find it in a good craft or hobby store. If you use that the window can be enjoyed from both sides. You could also use acrylic paint. That would not be transparent. I avoid Tempra and poster type paints. Yo...
