  • The zest of 2 oranges

  2. In a large bowl, prepare the tempura batter mixture according to the directions on the package. Reserve in the fridge.
  3. In a large skillet, add the oil and heat to 375F.
  4. Dip a few pieces of chicken in the cold tempura mixture and place in hot oil, a small amount at a time. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until pieces are golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel for a maximum of 2 minutes. Reserve on a grid.
  5. In a skillet over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil followed by ginger, garlic and 3/4 of the green onions. Cook for 30 seconds, stirring. Add the white beer and stir.
