Combine cornstarch, sugar, flour, salt, and monosodium glutamate in a large bowl. Add eggs, green onions, soy sauce, and garlic. Pat chicken dry and add to the sauce. Cover and refrigerate until marinated, 8 hours to overnight.
Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fry chicken in the hot oil until golden brown, 15 to 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
