Place peeled and deveined shrimp in a bowl along with the pieces of chicken. Add salt, black pepper, sesame seed oil, garlic and onion powder and mix in the seasonings.
In a zip lock bag add cornstarch and place the chicken and shrimp in the bag and mix until the pieces are fully coated. (You can do this in a bowl or on a plate whatever floats your boat)
In a deep bowl add the egg and whisk very well.
After coating chicken and shrimp pieces with cornstarch add them to the whisked egg and mix until the batter coats all the pieces.
In a frying pan add oil. Now the amount of oil depends on the type of pan you have. I would say fill the pan with oil up to 1 inch. Let it heat up to 300-350 degrees.
Fry chicken or shrimp pieces first. Please don’t flood the pan with the pieces, this will slow the frying process. Each batch should take no more than 5 mins to evenly fry. Bigger pieces vary.
