This is made by boneless chicken (fillets or cubes) which is marinated in soya sauce, chilli sauce and pepper and subsequently deep frying and seasoning again in sauces to get the best Chinese chilli chicken. If you are health cautious, you may opt for grilled chicken pieces. Some people tend to use ajjinomotto or monosodium glutamate (MSG) to give a distinctive flavour, I have refrained using it and still you will find how scrumptious this chilli chicken is.
