Boneless Lemon Chicken

Labels: { , , }

Many cuisines have their own lemon chicken, this one carries a sweet and sour tang and perfect for a family gathering.

  • 180 g Boneless chicken breast (or thighs)
  • 4 tbsp Cornstarch
  • Oil for frying
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar
  • 1 Egg white
  • 2 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Jiafan rice wine
  • 1/4 tsp White pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp Sesame oil
  • 50 ml Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 80 ml Chicken stock
  • 2 tsp Cornstarch
  • Lemon slices
  1. Cut the chicken breast in half. Combine marinade ingredients in a bowl. Mix the chicken breast with marinade and set aside for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat some oil in a large skillet to 190C/375F. Coat the chicken breast halves with cornstarch and fry until golden, about 5 minutes. Drain and then cut into serving size pieces and arrange on a serving platter.
  3. Combine all sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan and mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sauce boils and thickens, about 5 minutes. Take out the lemon slices to put on the chicken first, then pour the sauce over. Garnish with shredded spring onions if desired.
