This was just ok for us, it was VERY tart and lemony and I doubled the sugar. It was lovely to look at and I do like the method for cooking the chicken but for us it was just overpoweringly lemony. I pounded the breasts to make them flat and served over rice, I actually do want to make this again but I am going to sub orange for the lemon. This was in NO WAY bad, just very very lemony which I am sure some will love.
Delicious lemon chicken!! I will be making this one again, thanks for posting. the chicken cooked up crisp with the cornstarch coat and the lemon sauce was perfect; I added the chicken to the lemon sauce in the pan to reheat the sauce and added the spring onion to it in the pan too, served it nice and hot with orange asparagus and baked potato. lovely delicious meal, thanks!!!
For the Americans out there, I believe cornflour in this recipe means cornstarch. In commonwealth countries the terms are interchangeable, hence the confusion.
Lemon sauce was excellent. However I would bet the recipe means corn starch instead of corn flour, there is a difference.
It was great. We all loved it.Worth its effort.
It was ok, but not really worth all the effort in preparation. The sauce didn't really have much punch.
Great flavour, although personally I found it really sour at first. I added about 3 Tbsp sugar and then it was right for me. BF liked it a lot too, and wants to have it again, though he thought I should add yet more sugar! (He has a pretty big sweet tooth though.) Also I had to cook the sauce for longer than stated, which was no big deal, it just simmered while I made the chicken. Thanks for the recipe!
Easy, easy receipe which the whole family loved even my daughter who doesnt like meat loved this dish. I also have used this with pork and it was absolutely delicious. My dear husband has asked me to make this one again - high praise indeed!!!!!
