For the Chicken

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 large chicken breasts - chopped into 1 inch cubes skinless & boneless
  • 1/2 - 1 cup oil

For the Manchurian Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
  • 1 tablespoon crushed ginger
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons red chilli sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water


For the Chicken:

  • Heat oil in a frying pan.
  • Combine all the batter ingredients and mix well. Add the chicken boneless pieces and coat well.
  • Fry the chicken boneless pieces until golden brown and cooked through. Transfer to kitchen paper to drain excess oil. Set aside.

For the Manchurian Sauce:

  • Heat oil in a wok, and add the garlic and ginger and fry for about 30 seconds.
  • Then add the green onions and fry for another 30 seconds.
  • Add all sauce ingredients except the cornstarch and water.
  • Cook for a minute or two until the sauce starts to thicken and bubble.
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and add it to the sauce and keep stirring until it becomes thick.
  • Toss in the fried chicken and mix so that the sauce coats the chicken well.
  • Serve with garlic butter (pictured) or egg fried rice.



  • Partially freezing the chicken will make it easier to cut into cubes.
  • Due to the nature of the coating, this dish is best served immediately. Leftovers can be kept for up to 3 days, however, the coating will not retain its crispiness.
