Recipe by syltel

I got this recipe years ago from a chinese cookbook.It is delicious and very easy to prepare.This is one of my daughters fav. chicken dish. It is best eaten immediately and the skin of the chicken is really crispy.

This was very good. We made it exactly as described (minus the squirt of lemon) for a 26-person family get together and it was all gone at the end! We marinated overnight. The chicken had a great flavour, everyone loved it. The skin did not turn out crispy at all though, and I am not sure why. But it was still very good and extremely easy!
