A Chinese Stir Fry Restaurant Favourite: Fried Onion Ring Chicken 炸洋葱鸡 (Yong Chong Gai)

This quick and easy Deep Fried Onion Ring Chicken dish makes an awesome crunchy fried chicken dish, coupled with crispy onion rings drizzled over with a special sweet and sour sauce. It is a very simple yet flavourful dish to whip up anytime for lunch or dinner at home.

In this recipe, I have used store bought frozen fried chicken (packet form) for the convenience of those who have limited time cooking. You can also choose to make this dish with fresh chicken as well.

Served With Crispy Homemade Onion Rings, Simply Delicious

The star of this dish is obviously the Crispy Onion Rings. These fried onion rings taste so flavourful and good. They are soft and sweet on the inside and crispy on the outside and has such a good flavour. They are also very addictive so be sure to fry more, otherwise you may be disappointed when there is not enough for everyone to share.

Drizzled With A Special Home Style Sweet and Sour Sauce; More Rice, Please

Also, not forgetting another important component for this dish is the special home style sweet and sour sauce. Without it, this deep fried onion ring chicken dish will never be complete. A tinge of curry powder added makes a world of difference to this otherwise simple sauce. The curry powder has a unique flavour due to the combination of both savoury and sweet spices in it. It gives the sauce a deep earthy flavour as well as add brightness to it.

You will surely love the tangy flavour of this sweet and sour sauce. It can be made as spicy or mild as you like. Either way, it tastes just as great.
