Step 1

In a large shallow bowl whisk egg, soy sauce and wine. Add in chicken, mix well and allow to marinate for 20 minutes, covered.

Step 2

Place corn starch into a large baking tray. Pour chicken and marinade into the corn starch and coat chicken pieces evenly, lightly pressing the corn starch around the chicken.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large wok, pan or skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot (325°F or 165°C), shake off excess corn starch and fry chicken in batches in a single layer for about 5-6 minutes, turning half way during cooking, until golden and cooked through.

Step 4

Drain on a plate lined with paper towel. Discard oil and wipe wok/pan over with paper towel.

Step 5

Heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the garlic and ginger until fragrant (about 30 seconds).  Add stock, soy sauce, lemon juice, sugar, honey, and a pinch of salt. Whisk, bring to a simmer until the sugar dissolves.

Step 6

Whisk corn starch mixture into the simmering sauce and stir until thickened. Toss chicken in the sauce until evenly coated (about 2 minutes).

Step 7

Garnish with sesame seeds, green onions and lemon slices. Serve.
