    Chef Dee's Note:

    Lightly breaded and a distinct lemon flavor, this is a tasty chicken recipe. My teenage son made it, and we were surprised how close it was to our favourite chinese restaraunt. He found it on another site, then changed some things to make it easier we wouldn't make it any other way.

      One of my sons really enjoyed this but it seemed to be missing something. Only change I made was to use less oil, about a cup in a large skillet. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Very good Lemon chicken. I made half a recipe and it turned out great. I did add 1/2 t. lemon extract to the sauce to make a little more lemon flavor, as I didn't have enough lemon juice. Served with rice and egg rolls.

      This was really good! I was really surprised how good it was. I halved the recipe and only used 2 large chicken breast for 3 people. I also didn't use the 2 cups of oil and instead just used a couple of Tbsps to just brown the chicken. The directions were superb and everything came together perfectly! Thanks for posting this recipe!
