Recipe by Semra22

Another from my favorite Chinese cookbook, "Chinese Cooking Class" by Australian Women's Weekly. This is just as good as Chinese take-out Lemon Chicken. The lemon sauce is supposed to be tart and sweet at the same time.

  2. Pound the chicken breasts out lightly.
  3. Put the cornstarch into a bowl, gradually add water and lightly beaten egg yolks. Add salt and pepper, mix well. Dip the chicken breasts into the batter, drain well.

  5. Slice each breast across into 3 or 4 pieces. Arrange on serving plate. Sprinkle with chopped green onions, and spoon the hot sauce over.
