Taiwanese Popcorn Chicken
Taiwanese popcorn chicken is a popular street snack in Taiwan featuring savory bites of chicken coated in spices and fried in a crispy tempura batter.

In a large bowl, combine the chicken, garlic, ginger, five-spice powder, white pepper, salt, vinegar, and cayenne pepper.

Wait 10 minutes before serving.

Oil should be heated to 400 degrees F in a deep fryer or large saucepan (200 degrees C).

In a small bowl, smoothly whisk the egg.

Put the dry tempura mixture in a separate tiny bowl.

One at a time, dip chicken pieces into the egg, then coat with the tempura batter, shaking off any extra.

Working in batches, carefully lower the chicken into the hot oil and fry for 5 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown.

Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
