Great little recipe here. I didn't use as much oil to fry and still came out great. The white pepper sure gives a nice punch.

This tasted fantastic! The lemon sauce was better than any I've ever eaten. The panko crumbs were awesome on the chicken. I cut nugget sized chunks of chicken and really loved the crunch. I'm a novice fryer so I ended up with 5 different colors of chicken, cream, tan, toasted coconut, golden brown and charred :)) DH hates Chinese food and polished this off with two thumbs up. Thank you! Update 6-3-10 I made this for a 2nd time with MUCH better results! I bought a mini-deep fryer and the chicken came out beautiful... photo to come :)
