Fried Chicken in Chilli Sauce - 辣椒酱炒鸡

Do not get misled by the name and the colour of the dish. You may think it must be very spicy.
The red color comes from the chilli sauce and tomato sauce so that it is not spicy at all, instead it is sweet.

Recipe: Adapted from Quick & Easy HAWKERS' FAIR by Chef Alan Kok

2 chicken whole legs,cut into pieces
3 cups oil for deep frying
1 big onion,  diced

1 tsp salt
dash  of sesame oil and pepper
1 tsp corn flour

3 tbsp chilli sauce (sweet chilli sauce)
1 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tsp sugar
2 tbsp water
