*Preparation :

In a large salad bowl, put the chicken cut into small pieces, add the ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, season with salt and pepper. Mix and set aside.
In a bowl, mix the flour, rice flour, salt and cold water with a whisk until you obtain a semi-liquid batter that resembles pancake batter. Pour this mixture over the chicken and toss to coat each piece well.
Heat sunflower oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Brown the chicken pieces for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, turning them over.
Once the chicken is cooked, put it to drain on a wire rack or on absorbent paper.
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, water, honey, nuoc mam sauce, lemon juice or rice vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, sesame oil, garlic, sweet pepper, hot pepper, and season with salt and pepper as desired.
In a skillet, add the sauce and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, then add the cooked chicken and continue to cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens, about 1 to 2 minutes more.
Serve hot garnished with chopped cilantro or green onions and sesame seeds.
