Chicken With Salted Eggs

Similar to Kam Heong Prawns, savory dishes with salted eggs are popular in Chinese restaurants. I think it must have been during one of my food ventures that I've tasted chicken with salted eggs; though of course the recipe is well guarded. So, I followed my instincts and here it is; chicken fried and smothered with salted eggs, chillies and tad bit of aroma from coriander leaves.

400g chicken - cut into bite sizes
1/2 tbsp corn flour
3 salted eggs - microwave for 3 mins, once cool down, gently rumble
(Note: break eggs into microwave container and microwave. Alternatively, boil till cooked, either scoop out or remove shells and gently mash/break into pieces)
4 shallots - sliced thinly
3 red chillies - remove seeds and sliced thinly
1 small bunch of coriander leaves - sliced thinly
Enough oil for deep frying
Salt to taste

Mix cornflour and a bit of salt into chicken.  Deep fry chicken, remove and keep aside.
Leave just about 2 tbsp oil in the same wok.
Saute shallots; add the rest of the ingredients, including fried chicken.
Stir all together and remove from heat.
