True Lemon Chicken

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Barbs Miller

I wanted to make Lemon Chicken like the Chinese restaurants have. After trying many recipes, I found one that was OK. I played with the recipe and tweeked it to my liking...a Lemon Sauce that is lemony with a good balance of sweet. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Delicious Barb! I, too, have been searching for a lemon chicken sauce and have finally found it. Just the right touch of lemon/sweet. I doubled the recipe because I didn't think I'd have enough sauce (cause I doubled the chicken), but a single recipe would have been plenty. This was great!
