Lemon Chicken, Chinese Style

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Paja9203

We always loved Lemon Chicken in Chinese restaurants and my cousin found this recipe which is at least as good as the Lemon Chicken you find in most restaurants. It is sweet and tangy and is great served with rice or Chinese noodles and stir-fried vegetables.
