Easy Lemon Chicken -Gluten Free

Total Time

This dish is very easy to prepare. It has pan cooked chicken breast with a lemon sauce drizzled over the top. Ensure your flours, soy sauce and liquid stock used are all gluten free. I use Massell brand stock and Fountain brand soy sauce as they are currently GF. You can substitute the soy sauce for a gluten free Tamari sauce. Nobody would guess this is a GF dish. Make double quantity of the sauce if you like a lot of sauce to serve

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a meat mallet or your rolling pin, gently pound the chicken between sheets of cling-wrap until 1cm thick.
  2. Dip chicken in the beaten egg white and then coat in the rice flour (or GF plain flour). Shake off any excess flour.
  3. Heat the butter and oil in a large frypan. Cook chicken until lightly browned on both sides and cooked through. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper.
  4. Meanwhile- blend the cornflour, brown sugar and the lemon juice in a small saucepan. Add the grated ginger, soy sauce and the stock. Bring the sauce to the boil and stir constantly until the sauce thickens.
  5. Slice the chicken,serve drizzled with the sauce and some extra lemon wedges or slices.

Delicious! I had two chicken breast fillets and three chicken tenderloins in the fridge so I used them all to make this recipe. I used GF plain flour because it was all I had at home but then kept to the written recipe. The chicken was tender and the sauce was wonderful. Thank you **Jubes**

Yum! This recipe is so good! Very easy (I'm usually pretty useless in the kitchen and I managed to pull it off). Tastes very similar to the lemon chicken from my favourite restaurant. Is also a nice recipe when the chicken is replaced with fish. Thank you!

Made For Welcome to Asia -- don't forget your fork, ZWT4 2008. A Quick and delicious recipe. Followed the recipe completely, the chicken was tender and flavourful, and the Lemon sauce, with a little added crushed red pepper flakes, since we like it a little hot, was delightful. Thanks!
