Lemon Chicken Recipe
Serves 2 | Prep Time: 20 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes
10 oz (300g) skinless, boneless chicken breast/thigh, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup corn starch plus 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, sifted and combined well
Oil, for deep-frying
1/2 teaspoon white sesame
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon Shaoxing wine, optional
1 tablespoon corn starch
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 heaping tablespoon sugar or more to taste
5 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon cornstarch
Pinch of salt, or to taste
Marinate the chicken with the Marinade, for 30 minutes. Mix all the ingredients for the Sauce. Set aside.
Coat the marinated chicken with the corn starch and all-purpose flour mixture. Heat up a wok with about two inches of oil. As soon as the oil is fully heated, deep-fry the chicken until golden brown. Transfer the chicken out to a dish lined with paper towels to sock up the excess oil.
Add all the ingredients in the Sauce into a small sauce pan and bring it to a quick boil. Transfer the fried chicken into the sauce, stir to coat well with the lemon sauce.
Dish out, top with the white sesame, and serve immediately.
