  • 1
    Heat oven to 200°F. Line large plate with several paper towels; set aside. Line rimmed baking sheet with cooking parchment or foil; set aside.
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix honey, soy sauce and chili garlic sauce; set aside.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat egg with whisk or fork. Beat in flour, cornstarch, salt and cold water.
  • 4
    In 5-quart Dutch oven or 10-inch straight-sided skillet, heat oil over medium heat to 375°F. Dip bell pepper and broccoli into batter; let excess batter drip back into bowl. Cook in single layer in hot oil 3 to 4 minutes, turning once, until coating is crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towel-lined plate, then transfer to pan and place in oven to keep warm. Wait for oil to reach 375°F again between batches.
  • 5
    Dip chicken pieces into batter; let excess batter drip back into bowl. Cook chicken, in batches if necessary, in hot oil 4 to 5 minutes, turning once, until coating is crisp and golden brown and chicken is no longer pink in center. Top chicken and vegetables with green onions; serve with sauce.

Expert Tips

  • We fried in 3 batches: first, all of the bell pepper, then all of the broccoli, then all of the chicken. But if your pan won’t hold that much, feel free to do 4 or even 5 batches. The results will be better if you don’t overcrowd the pan.
  • Don’t fear the hot oil. Gently place the battered food in the oil without splashing. If you flinch and drop it from high above, you’re much more likely to get a burn from the oil.
