How to make Asian Sweet Chili Chicken:

Step 1: In a large bowl, mix the egg whites, all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking powder, ice-cold water, canola oil, and chicken.

Step 2: Add oil in a frying pan enough to deep fry the chicken.

Step 3: Drain the batter from the pieces of chicken using a slotted spoon. Then, add the chicken into the hot oil.

Step 4: Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes until the chicken is golden brown, breaking them apart when the crust begins to form.

Step 5: To prevent the oil’s temperature from dropping fry the chicken in batches.

Step 6: Discard most of the oil just leave around several tbsp of oil in the pan.

Step 7: Saute the garlic and green onions for about 20 to 30 seconds over medium heat.

Step 8: Add the chicken back to the pan followed by the sweet chilli sauce, and crushed red pepper. Toss to combine.

Step 9: If desired, garnish with sesame seeds or green onions and serve quickly.
