Chinese Lemon Chicken Recipe

Why order take out when you can make your own Chinese lemon chicken at home? There are a few different versions of lemon chicken out there, all coming from different countries. Probably the most popular type of lemon chicken would be baked in the oven. We all know baked lemon chicken is great but here is the Chinese version – just like take out or at the buffets. The Chinese version varies greatly from that of other cultures. Like most types of Chinese chicken the chicken is first cut into small chunks, battered, and then deep fried and covered with a sweet-lemon sauce. Ingredients: 2 1/2lbs boneless-skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1” cubes)Marinade- 2 tablespoons soy sauce ½ teaspoon saltBatter- 2 large eggs ¼ cup cornstarch ½ teaspoon baking powder 1 pinch white pepper oil (for frying)Sauce- 1/3 cup sugar 1 cup chicken broth 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch 2 tablespoons lemon juice ¾ teaspoon salt 3 slices of lemon (peeled) 2 tablespoons oil yellow food coloring (optional)

Perhaps you looked on the internet for how to make that memorable dish from your own home kitchen only to be disappointed with the results and discouraged by what you hoped for would be a hit with friends and family. If it makes you feel better, I have experienced this myself on my occasions. However, there was a time early on in my marriage where my husband and I lived paycheck to paycheck, which left very little for luxuries like an evening out at our favorite restaurant if it were not a very special occasion. Growing up in a family with little means prepared me for times when I needed to be frugal, resourceful, and creative. One valuable skill I developed over the years was to re-create my favorite restaurant dishes at home not only because it was much less expensive, but because I could adjust the ingredients to suit my own personal taste and preferences.
