  For the best results use skinned deboned legs of capon. Cut the chicken
  into pieces no larger than 1 inch square. Prepare marinade by combining egg
  white, cornstarch and 1 tablespoon soy sauce in a large bowl. Add chicken
  pieces and set aside for two hours. In a deep pot, heat the oil until it
  reaches 350 degrees. In a basket, or with a slotted spoon, lower several
  marinated chicken pieces into the fat. Fry about one or two minutes or
  until the chicken becomes crisp; test for doneness before completing the
  batch. Continue until all pieces have been fried. Set oil and cooked
  chicken pieces aside. In a wok, on high heat, reheat two tablespoons of the
  reserved oil. Add prepared ginger, scallions, garlic and chili peppers.
  Stir to prevent burning. Add the fried chicken and stir quickly.Add sugar,
  soy sauce, vinegar and cornstarch mixed with chicken stock. Remove from the
  heat and stir sesame oil into the sauce. Spoon the mixture on to a hot
  platter and serve immediately with steamed rice. Serves 4. Hazel Mah who
  owns Le Piment Rouge Windsor (translation: Red Pepper) and Le Piment Rouge
  Laurier graciously agreed to share the recipe for the popular dish. This
  dish dates back to the Chin Dynasty and is named for General Tao, a
  governor of the northern Chinese province of Hunan. According to legend,
  the old general ate nothing but poultry and this dish was his favourite. Le
  Piment Rouge Windsor, 1170 Peel in Montreal. From The Gazette, 91/02/27.
