  • Place drumsticks in a shallow baking dish. Pour over soy sauce mixture and toss until chicken is well coated. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, toss mango slices with salt. Let stand 30 minutes.

  • Add enough oil to a deep, heavy-bottomed pot to reach a depth of 3 inches. Heat oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 375 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer. Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry.

  • In a shallow dish, mix together cornstarch and rice flour. Working in batches, dredge chicken in cornstarch mixture and carefully add to hot oil. Cook until crisp, browned, and cooked through, about 10 minutes, adjusting heat as necessary to maintain temperature.

  • Transfer chicken to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Place hot-and-sour sauce in a large bowl; add chicken and toss to coat. Serve immediately with salted mango and mint leaves.

LOVED IT! Took it to a superbowl pot luck this year and everyone was impressed and asked what was in the sauc. The ingredients does sound a little intimidating, but getting them is pretty cheap. I heard of this dish being referenced in one of the travel channel shows and that it was very popular. So when I saw Martha Stewart had this recipe by way of chef Jean-George, I had to try it out. Sauce could be very good over battered shrimp served with rice and veggies. Will make more sauce to store!
