I've searched all over the internet for a recipe for salt and pepper chicken and they all sounded very difficult so I experimented myself and managed to make one a lot easier. I've always wondered how the takeaways and restaurants make them, so here is my way.
If you want it really spicy then put lots of chilli powder in. I got all the stuff from my local ASDA and Tesco and it only come to about £5 for all the ingredients that can be used time and time again.
Hi, I tried this recipe in my school lesson during today and everyone loved it and wanted more and more- even when I put it away to take home with me! Thank you very much for sharing this recipe, I'd be grateful if you have any more! - 06 May 2014
Great recipe , I tweaked it a little and added fresh chopped chili and some garlic. Thanks so much for this. - 18 Sep 2014
I normally avoid recipes that don't give proper ingredient proportion lists but as I love salt and pepper chicken I figured I'd give it a go, especially as I was adjusting for different amounts of people. Like everyone else who tried it, I tweaked to include fresh ingredients, and although the ingredient proportions (on those that actually had amounts listed) were wildly inaccurate it just meant I had plenty left over to make and freeze. Overall, although I liked the end result, I would take this recipe with a "pinch of salt" and make it your own. For instance, using a deep fat fryer and dipping your chicken pieces into flour and THEN the egg mixture will create a mess. So I dipped into a egg, salt and pepper mixture and then dipped into flour which was a much cleaner frying process (although didn't taste any different)... And try to use fresh ingredients if possible. And the addition of spring onions is definitely a good one, I've never eaten this dish without spring onions! - 20 Feb 2018
