Special Chicken

1 1/2 lb Chicken wings, cut-up into         
               -segments at joints.
--------------------------A MIXTURE---------------------------     
  2 tb Soy sauce     
  1 ts Sugar     
  1 tb Sherry wine         
          A few gratings of fresh         
  2 ts Hoisin sauce     
  1    Clove garlic, minced   
1/4 ts Sesame oil     
  1 ts Salt       
      ds MSG (optional)
-------------------------B MIXTURE-----------------------------     
  2    Eggs   
1/2 c  Cornstarch   
1/2 c  Flour         
          Oil for deep frying         
          Lettuce leaves, shredded 


Green onion, Chinese parsley and cashew nuts, all chopped, for  garnish This is one of the better deep-fried chicken recipes I've  found.  It calls for chicken wings, but I used a whole chicken, cut  up Chinese style and just increased the marinade ingredients a tad.   

Serve this with side dishes of hoisin sauce, spiced salt (toasted salt  mixed with black pepper about half and half), hot mustard and chili  oil along with a bowl of finely chopped scallions.  Dip piece of  chicken into the dip of your choice, then into the scallions and  enjoy!  Ice cold beer goes great with this dish.  Oh yeah++steamed  rice too...

Be sure to use the dark, toasted sesame oil rather than the health  food store stuff.   

1.  Soak cut-up chicken in marinade ingredients A for 1 hour.  Mix ingredients B into bowl with marinated chicken.  Stir well.  Will be very sticky and stiff to mix.   

2.  Heat 5 inches oil in deep fryer to 375F.  Drop batter covered chicken piece by piece carefully into hot oil.  Do not fill too full of chicken or it will take too long to brown.  Should take only 5 minutes to cook through. Result will be crispy golden brown chicken pieces.

3.  Drain on paper towels.  Place on platter lined with lettuce shreds.

4.  Garnish if desired with chopped green onions, Chinese parsley and cashew nuts.
