4.  Once crispy, using a slotted spoon, lift the chicken pieces, drain the oil and remove them on a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess oil. Keep aside.

Chili Sauce

2. Add chopped onion and green bell pepper to the pan. Saute until the onions are cooked. Add spring onion (bulbs) and saute for 2 mins.
3.  Add vinegar, soy sauce, chili sauce and tomato ketchup to the pan. Mix well and cook for 1 min.
4.  Add chicken stock to the pan and bring to a boil. Add fried chicken and gently mix everything. Bring to a boil till the sauce thickens to the desired consistency.

Garnish with spring onion (greens) and serve hot with fried rice or noodles.
