Honey Red Dragon Chicken

My son just loves this chicken starter so much that whenever we go to China pearl ( one of the famous Chinese restaurants in bangalore and me and Amit miss it so much .....) he used make sure that I order this item when we used to go there , so i thought let me give a try and see how it turns out .....and it was v good, but they do the best ....but this was nearly like that :)
