Taiwanese Fried Chicken in Plum Sauce ..梅汁雞柳 (AFF Taiwan)

From what i read in this Taiwanese Fried Chicken in Plum Sauce is a dinner and lunch favourite in Taiwan. Now it is a dinner and lunch favourite in my house  ^_^
Yes, this taiwanese dish taste extremely good with it sweet and sour taste of the plum sauce. You will simply have another bowl of steam rice with must try it!!
I don't know how to make my own sour plum sauce so what i do was to buy a bottle of plum sauce. I bought LKK plum sauce, hope that it is nearest to Taiwan taste.
 It is quite simple to prepare this dish. Get ready all the ingrediets, marinate the chicken and start wokking.
These are the ingredients.

Marinate the chicken.

 Double fried the chicken will make the chicken pieces crispy outside and moist inside.
