3. Add the chicken and brown it slowly a few pieces at a time, skin side down and then turn over.
4. Take it out and drain on paper towel.
5. In another wok or pan and heat 1 teaspoon oil and fry the spring onions, ginger and chilli bean sauce (or chilli powder) assuring that the heat is not too high or it will burn the sauce.
