How to make it
- Mix together the egg yolks, one tablespoon of water, the cornstarch, and some salt and pepper.
- Heat two inches of oil in a wok or deep frying pan.
- Toss the chicken in the cornstarch mixture and deep-fry the meat in batches of five minutes (or until the chicken becomes crisp and golden). Drain on paper towels and set aside.
- Empty the oil from the wok, leaving behind a thin coating in the pan, then stir-fry the onion and peppers over high heat for a few minutes, tossing continuously to prevent burning or sticking.
- Drain the pineapple cubes (reserving the juice), add to the pan, and cook for a minute or so.
- Use some of the reserve pineapple juice with a little cornstarch to make a paste, then add to the pan, along with the remaining juice, the ketchup, soy sauce and vinegar. Add 1/2 cup of water if you feel the mixture is too dry. Increase the heat and stir until the sauce thickens.
- Add the chicken pieces back into the pan and let simmer for five minutes until cooked through. Check the seasoning, then serve with cilantro leaves as a garnish.
