Cooking instruction summary:

Procedures 1 Toss the chicken with the onion and garlic and marinate for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator. 2 Whisk the egg, water, cornstarch, salt, and pepper together in a medium bowl just until moist. Do not overmix. 3 Over medium heat, heat at least an inch of oil in a deep heavy saucepan. Using long chopsticks or tongs, dip one chicken piece at a time in the cornstarch mixture and carefully place it in the hot oil. Repeat until the pan is almost full but the chicken pieces aren't touching. Cook until crispy and golden brown, usually about 10 minutes. To check if it's cooked through, take out the largest piece and cut to see that the juices run clear. Place the pieces on a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat until all the pieces are cooked. 4 Mix the chile paste, sugar, ketchup, sesame seeds, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the fried chicken and carefully turn to coat all the pieces with the seasoning. Serve immediately.

Food Joke

There is a new virus going around, called "work." If you receive any sort of "work" at all, whether via email, Internet or simply handed to you by a colleague ... DO NOT OPEN IT. This has been circulating around our building for months and those who have been tempted to open "work" or even look at "work" have found that their social life is deleted and their brain ceases to function properly. If you do encounter "work" via email or are faced with any "work" at all, then to purge the virus, send an email to your boss with the words "I've had enough... I'm off to the pub." The "work" should automatically be forgotten by your brain. If you receive "work" in paper-document form, simply lift the document and drag the "work" to your garbage can. Put on your hat and coat and skip to the nearest bar with two friends and order three pints of beer . A.
