Lemon Sauce for Chicken

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by ReeLani

I love lemon chicken from Chinese restaurants but don't want to deep fry anything at home. So when I found this yummy sauce recipe I decided it'd be just as good over stir fried chicken breast strips. I've also made this with Splenda instead of sugar with good results.

I had been searching for such a sauce since the heb chineese kitchen in my neighborhood closed. I followed it exactly and it was AWESOME!


  1. In saucepan bring chicken stock to a boil and then add lemon juice, sugar and zest.
  2. Return mixture to a boil.
  3. Blend together cornstarch and cold water and stir into the lemon sauce.
  4. Cook until thickened, stirring frequently and adjust seasoning to taste.
