Cut chicken on the diagonal into thick strips, about two inches wide.In a bowl, beat eggs.In another container, place flour.Coat chicken strips in egg mixture first, then generously pat with flour, covering all sides. I will often give it a couple of coatings. There should be a thick layer of batter on the chicken pieces.When oil is hot, fry chicken pieces till golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side.
  3. Remove chicken, and let rest on a paper towel to drain the oil.To make candy sauce, place soy sauce and sugar in a bowl and mix together, about 30 seconds.The sugar will not completely dissolve, but the mixture should be thick, and not grainy.

  5. Serve with rice, drizzle remain sauce over chicken.
  6. Garnish with sliced scallions.
