Lemon Chicken, Chinese Style

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.

    This is really an awesome recipe. Prep time is a little longer than 20 minutes but WELl Worth it.

    This was great. Finishing the chicken off in the oven made it really tender. I added veggies that I had on hand - carrot, capsicum, eschallots and made a bit more breading to suit my taste. I will make this again.

    This Lemon Chicken is wonderful!!! It has great flavor and the chicken is so tender - not tough like so many restaurant versions. I also liked that there was less breading on the chicken. I used about 1/2 cup cornstarch for the breading and 3 chicken breast halves. There was just enough sauce for flavor and it it wasn't swimming in it. DD had two servings and asked me to make this again. Thanks Paja!!
