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.

How Sweet It Is Honey Soy Stir Fried Chicken: Can I order an easier life? For all those who have it harder than I do.... I've been feeling a bit sorry for myself these days, with all the suffering I've been doing at the hands of Son's unsuccessful potty training venture, Daughter #1's start of school, and Daughter #2's temper tantrums over swim lessons, and all in all just being tried day after day. First grade homework stresses me out like you wouldn't believe, which sounds slightly ridiculous I know, but the act of trying to get through homework without pulling out all of my hair is a feat only managed by the best of women I'm sure. Add on top of that the driving that suddenly has tripled in my routine. Which leaves me tired. But this recipe - it's my answer to a day that was too too crazy. And when I saw them eating their meal with relish, giggling and laughing at the table as we talked about the day, I thought, well - it's a hard life, but it's one worth having. Serve topped with cilantro or spring onions as garnish.

Tasty Kitchen: A Happy Recipe Community! Orange Chicken Recipe Today I’m back with yet another Chinese-American dish – Orange Chicken. It seems as though you can find orange chicken almost anywhere you want to eat these days. It is most commonly found at fast food restaurants, but don’t worry, this is so much better than anything you will find there. What really makes this recipe stand out is the combination of both orange and lemon juice. Once again we are also using the deep dryer for cooking the battered chicken. Now I get a lot of questions from people wondering if they can use a wok instead. Cooking Instructions: Step 1: Combine flour, salt, and pepper. Step 2: Meanwhile, in a large saucepan combine 1 ½ cups water, lemon juice, orange juice, rice vinegar, and soy sauce.

Cannoli Tart Oh my goodness. You know when you have one of those desserts that completely knocks your socks off? This is it. And it’s simple, too. It’s not very often that I get to bake with ricotta because my husband swears that he dislikes it. However, tricky as it was, it actually worked. For the crust and the tart filling, all you need is some amaretto, ricotta cheese, eggs, cold butter, flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and chocolate chips. Begin by making the crust. Then add the cold butter and pulse until it forms little crumbs. Add the egg and milk, then process until the dough comes together … … and forms a ball like so. Next, place the dough ball between two sheets of parchment paper. Use the rolling pin (or something similar, like say, a bottle of wine?) Press the dough into the pan or plate with your fingers. For the filling, I simply gave my food processor a quick wipe down since it was already out. Then fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the filling in the tart pan … Can you even handle this?

Buta Udon (Udon with braised pork) While this this dish has its roots firmly planted in my New York apartment, I could totally picture it being served in an Okinawan noodle bar. Okinawa is the southern-most island of Japan, just a stones-throw from Taiwan and their food takes cues from their neighbors, using a lot of pork and fish. Rather than using a traditional dashi based soup stock for udon, I’ve combined some braising liquid from the pork belly kakuni I made the other night with dashi to create a tasty, though unconventional broth for the noodles. I used Sanuki Udon noodles which have a pleasantly firm texture when cooked al dente. I know it’s not every day you have Japanese braised pork laying around, but to be honest, I actually made the pork last night with the intent to make this udon today (yes, it’s THAT good). 2 C dashi 1 C braising liquid from buta kakuni (fat skimmed) salt to taste 2 bundles udon noodles 8 slices of buta kakuni scallions finely chopped Put the dashi and braising liquid in a pot and simmer.

Shutterbean Chicken Teriyaki Recipe | Japanese Recipes Chicken Teriyaki (鳥照り焼き) is a lunchtime staple in Japan, filling bento boxes being carted off to offices and schools alike. Teri refers to the lacquered sheen that teriyaki sauce develops on the surface of the chicken, while yaki means grilled. Almost any cut of chicken can be used, but chicken teriyaki is most commonly prepared with the leg meat (thighs or drumsticks) which is filleted to ensure it cooks evenly. Long before sushi became the ambassador of Japanese cuisine to the rest of the world, chicken teriyaki invaded the west, and for better or worse it came to represent the whole of the Japanese culinary repertoire. So what makes for an authentic teriyaki sauce? It’s simple… equal parts soy sauce, mirin, sake, and sugar. It’s not that I have anything against those fancy sweet soy marinades with ginger, garlic, chili, green onions, sesame seeds, and or fruit puree in them, but sauces with these ingredients aren’t teriyaki sauce since they cloud the teri.
