You don't have to go to a Japanese restaurant for fresh, crispy tempura. Make it yourself with this delicious recipe!

Ingredients

1/4
cup honey
1/4
cup soy sauce
1
tablespoon chili garlic sauce
1
egg
1
cup all-purpose flour
1
cup cornstarch
1
teaspoon salt
1 1/4
cups cold water
2
cups vegetable oil
1
red bell pepper, cut in thin strips
1
bunch broccoli florets and stalks, cut into 4-inch pieces (about 3/4 lb)
3/4
lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into long thin strips
3
green onions, thinly sliced on the bias

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 200°F. Line large plate with several paper towels; set aside. Line rimmed baking sheet with cooking parchment or foil; set aside.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix honey, soy sauce and chili garlic sauce; set aside.
  • 3 In large bowl, beat egg with whisk or fork. Beat in flour, cornstarch, salt and cold water.
  • 4 In 5-quart Dutch oven or 10-inch straight-sided skillet, heat oil over medium heat to 375°F. Dip bell pepper and broccoli into batter; let excess batter drip back into bowl. Cook in single layer in hot oil 3 to 4 minutes, turning once, until coating is crisp and golden brown. Drain on paper towel-lined plate, then transfer to pan and place in oven to keep warm. Wait for oil to reach 375°F again between batches.
  • 5 Dip chicken pieces into batter; let excess batter drip back into bowl. Cook chicken, in batches if necessary, in hot oil 4 to 5 minutes, turning once, until coating is crisp and golden brown and chicken is no longer pink in center. Top chicken and vegetables with green onions; serve with sauce.
Tips  

We fried in 3 batches: first, all of the bell pepper, then all of the broccoli, then all of the chicken. But if your pan won’t hold that much, feel free to do 4 or even 5 batches. The results will be better if you don’t overcrowd the pan.

Don’t fear the hot oil. Gently place the battered food in the oil without splashing. If you flinch and drop it from high above, you’re much more likely to get a burn from the oil.
