Directions

To prepare the sauce—in a medium saucepan combine the chicken broth, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sweet chili sauce, oil, sugar, and cornstarch. 

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until the sauce is slightly thickened. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. Pour buttermilk into a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper. Dip each chicken strip first into the buttermilk and then roll in the flour mixture until evenly coated.

Place chicken strips into the hot oil, a few at a time and deep fry the chicken strips in batches until golden brown and the chicken is fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees). 

Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Immediately toss the chicken strips with the sauce. Garnish chicken strips with green onions and sesame seeds.
