Chinese Lemon Chicken

I love Chinese food!

When we were younger my parents would take us to our local Chinese restaurant to celebrate Birthdays or special family events. I loved the whole getting to pick a starter and main with the promise of banana fritters for desert if i was a good girl and ate all my dinner. It made me feel like a proper wee adult :)

Even now, when we decide to treat ourselves to a rare take-out, we almost always get a Chinese. I love love love Lemon chicken so i decided to give my own a go ... Which was tasty!!!
You'll need
3 chicken breast, cut into chunks
1 cup plain flour
½ cup vegetable oil
Salt and pepper
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 tsp cider vinegar

Lemon sauce
¼ cup honey
½ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup soy sauce
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup pineapple juice
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
zest of one lemon

How to make
Mix together all sauce ingredients, and still until sugar melts, and are left with a lovely lemon sauce. Then set aside.
Next, prepare chicken by cutting chicken into tender chunks, then pat them dry.

Then mix together salt and pepper (a few shakes of each) with the flour, and coat the chunks in it.

Mix together milk, egg, and vinegar, and take floured chicken, and dip into the egg, milk, vinegar mixture then back into the flour again.

In a medium size pan, heat oil until it sizzles and fry your chicken chunks on each side until nice and brown.
Set on paper towels to catch excess oil

You can pour over the lemon sauce or put it in a separate dish to dunk it in. That's totally up to you.

Serve with rice or noodles ... again that's your call :)
