Lemon Chicken



Lemon chicken
This is a great chicken recipe infused with Asian flavors and was very similar to the Chinese restaurant style lemon chicken.It is citrus flavored,sweet, tart and crispy chicken .The chicken is first cut into small pieces, dipped in batter and deep fried. The sauce is made separately and drizzled over the chicken.This is perfect with jasmine rice.




Ingredients
1)Chicken boneless- 1 1/2 lb
Soya sauce- 3 tsp
Salt a pinch

2)For the batter
Egg- 2
Corn starch-2 tbs

3)For the sauce
Water - 3/4 cup
( or you can use chicken broth)
Sugar- 3-4 tsp
Salt- 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice- 1 lemon
Lemon zest- 1 tsp
Corn starch- 1 tsp
Yellow color- one drop( optional)

Sesame seeds roasted - 1 tsp
Chopped spring onions - a few

Clean and cut chicken  into small pieces and marinate with soya sauce and pinch of salt and keep aside for ten minutes.
Mix the ingredients under two and make a batter. Heat oil in a pan. Dip the marinated chicken in the batter and deep fry in batches for four to five minutes till it is crispy and golden brown. Drain into paper towels and keep aside.
Mix all ingredients listed under three into a sauce pan and put it in medium flame, stir and allow it to simmer and thicken. Place the chicken in a serving dish and drizzle the sauce all over the chicken. Sprinkle roasted sesame seeds and chopped spring onions. Serve with jasmine rice.


Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
