Soy Sauce Chicken with Lemon Sauce

Finally bought some boneless chicken breasts and I was very eager to try out a new recipe. I frantically searched for simple recipes that required stuff that I already had on hand. I found this one.

Funny enough mine didn’t quite look like the ones on site. Perhaps it’s cause I used one tablespoon of soy sauce instead of a teaspoon. ‘To eat is your own’ – Laura Vitale

Anyway, I didn’t do much to tweak the original.

Ingredients:

2 boneless chicken breasts cut into chunks

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 egg yolk

11/2 tbsp cornflour

3 tbsp vegetable oil for frying

Sauce:

Zest of 1 large lemon

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup water

2 tbsp sugar

Salt and Black pepper to taste.

Toss the chicken chunks with the soy sauce. Marinate for 30 minutes.

As the chicken is marinating make the sauce.

Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan and gently bring it to a boil. The sauce will thicken.

For the coating, mix the egg yolk with the corn flour.

Coat the marinated chicken with the mixture.

Heat some oil in a pan then fry the coated chicken. I did 5 minutes on each side.

Drain over a paper towel covered plate.

Served with some herb turmeric rice.

Delicious!

Verdict:

Heavenly!! The chicken was very crunchy and goodness the lemon sauce, never tasted such before. Finger licking good. Hubby enjoyed the meal.

It was too delicious there were no leftovers for me to carry for lunch 😦

If I could do it over gain:

Add a bit more black pepper in the sauce, to balance out the sweet and savoury, or reduce on the the amount of sugar to one tablespoon.
