Recipe Of The Day- "Lemon Chicken"

Chinese is one of my favourite cuisines & I eat and cook it very often. This recipe is from one of my favourite chefs Kokab Khwaja and this was the first time I tried it and it turned out good. It is both sweet & tangy, not very spicy and good for those who like to enjoy different flavours!

Just like many recipes, Lemon Chicken also has different ways to cook & this one is a very simple one (like most of my recipes).





Ingredients: (this recipe makes for 2-4 people)

For the Chicken:

4 Boneless Chicken breasts
1/2 cup cornflour
3 tbsp water
3 egg yolks
salt & pepper to taste
2 spring onions (only the green part for garnish, I used sliced capsicum)
Oil

For the Lemon Sauce

1/2 cup Lemon Juice
2 Knorr chicken cubes
2 tbsp Cornflour (Add more or lessen it according to the thickness you like)
2 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp ginger paste
2-3 cups water ( Add or lessen water according to the thickness you like)

Method:

Prepare Chicken:

Add cornflour, water, egg yolks, salt & pepper in a bowl and whisk them all together.

Now slice chicken breasts. (There are a number of ways you can slice chicken, in thin short slices, or thin long slices. I just cut them in thick short pieces).

Now dip the chicken pieces in the above mixture of yolks etc and deep fry for few seconds.

Keep the chicken aside and prepare sauce.

Lemon Sauce:

Mix together All the ingredients for the sauce in a saucepan. Cook till thickens; but not too much just enough to have a sauce like consistency.

You can now either put the already fried chicken piece in the sauce or pour the sauce on the chicken and serve hot. Granish with spring onions. Serve with boiled/fried rice.

Who doesnt enjoy a bowl of hot soup in winters, so this can also be served like below. With Chicken Corn Soup, Plain fried rice and ofcourse a bowl of the tangy, sweet lemon chicken. Bon Appétit!



---End NOtes---

You can always change the amount of ingredients you use according to your taste. For example if you dont like too tangy a flavour, then lessen the amount of lemon juice.
