Mix all the ingredients for the Batter until well combined.

Add the chicken into the batter.

Heat up a wok/skillet with about two inches of oil.

As soon as the oil is fully heated, deep-fry the chicken until golden brown.

Transfer the chicken out to a dish lined with paper towels to sock up the excess oil.

Clean the wok/skillet and heat it up on medium heat.

Add the oil and stir-fry the garlic until aromatic.
