1 Tablespoon chili sauce with garlic
1. Marinate chicken tenders in bouillon, soy, vegetarian oyster sauce, and salt and pepper for half an hour, then drain and reserve the liquid.
2. Mix walnuts and sesame seeds, then add egg white and cornstarch, and mix well, and add about half the marinade to make a batter.
