Marinate the chicken in the fridge for 30 minutes

Make a batter with the cornflour and whisked eggs by stirring continuously with a fork till it becomes smooth

Coat the chicken in the batter well

Heat oil on medium and deep fry the chicken in batches for 3-4 minutes or until the surface is crisp. Take it out and let it rest for 10 minutes

Then heat the oil on medium-high and again fry all the chicken together for 2-3 minutes until they turn a golden brown color

To make the sauce, heat a wok on medium and add 1 Tbsp oil, ginger, garlic, and the paprika powder

Mix well for a few seconds and then pour in the orange juice, soy sauce, sugar and orange zest. Stir till the sugar melts and then add the honey and mix well

Add the vinegar, stir for a few seconds and then add in the cornflour slurry

Cook on low-medium heat until the sauce starts thickening. Make sure the sauce is thick

Then turn off the heat and add in the fried chicken and mix everything well

Garnish with some spring onion greens and orange slices, and you’re all set to serve! It goes amazingly well with some sticky rice.
