Lemon Sauce for Chicken

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.

    Loved the recipe, I followed the directions, but before pouring in the cornstarn i used a fork to thoroughly blend with the water then poured it in to the pot with the other boiling ingredients from the recipe

    I’m sorry but this recipe is terrible! Substitute the chicken broth for water, take out the corn starch and what you’re left with is literally a recipe for lemonade.

    I used with pork scaloppine. Substituted plain flour for cornflour and added some fresh sage. Great!
