Fried Chicken Tenders With Oyster-Ketchup Sauce, Green Onion and Sesame

Fried Chicken Tenders With Oyster-Ketchup Sauce, Green Onion and Sesame

Deep fry chicken tenders until crispy, add lots of chopped green onion and sesame seeds, and cover with oyster-ketchup sauce.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken tenders
5
For the batter:
Egg
1/2
Cold water
75 ml
Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon
Cake flour
50 g
For the oyster-ketchup sauce:
〇Oyster sauce
1 tablespoon
〇Ketchup
1 tablespoon
〇Water
2 tablespoons
〇Sake
1 teaspoon
〇Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon
Green onions, finely chopped
1/2 cups (100 ml)
White sesame seeds
a lot

Steps

1. Take the sinews off the chicken tenders, and cut each in half (for large bite-sized pieces). Sprinkle with a little sake (not listed in the ingredients) and massage it in.
2. Make the sauce. Put the 〇 ingredients in a small pan and simmer. When it comes to a boil turn off the heat, then add the chopped green onions and the sesame seeds. I used this brand of oyster sauce this time.
3. Make the batter. Mix the beaten egg and cold water together, add the mayonnaise, and then add the cake flour in several batches. (It's best to chill the flour beforehand too.)
4. Pat the chicken tenders dry, dip in the Step 3 batter and deep fry in 170°C oil until crispy.
5. Plate the fried chicken, cover with the Step 2 sauce and it's done.
6. You may already know how to do this, but I've added directions for removing the sinew from chicken tenders.
7. Place a chicken tender with the sinew side on the bottom. Make a 1 cm cut between the sinew and the meat.
8. Thread the sinew between the tines of a fork. Pull the sinew slowly while holding down the fork, and it should come off easily.
9. Try mixing up the fried chicken pieces with the sauce. This will soften the batter coating quickly, so I recommend it if you're going to eat the chicken right away.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wondered if a sweet-sour sauce poured over light and crispy friend chicken tenders would taste good. So I made a sauce using oyster sauce.
