Asian-style lemon chicken

We have been inspired by our friends from China and have prepared this delicious 🥢Asian-style lemon chicken 🥢. A typical dish of the Cantonese region, which we have adapted to our style and the result is spectacular.



For the battered chicken:
  • 2 chicken breasts cut in a half
  • 1 tsbp cornflour
  • Sunflower oil for frying the chicken
  • 50 ml soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • ½ lemon
  • Salt, pepper and ginger for the marinade
For the sauce:
  • 2 squeezed lemons and
  • 3 slices
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 ml chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp cornflour

Step by step :

Cut the breasts in half and marinate them in soy sauce for 1 hour, the longer you do this, the more flavour they will have. Stripe
For the batter, mix one tablespoon of corn flour with the beaten egg and the juice of half a lemon. Dip the drained breasts into this mixture and fry them until they turn golden. Stripe
Cut three thin slices of lemon and squeeze the other two lemons. In a saucepan, cook the lemon juice with the sugar, broth, one tbsp of corn flour and the three lemon slices over a low heat until it thickens like a syrup. Stripe
Cut the breasts into small strips to make it easier for the diner to eat them with chopsticks. In a bowl, place the three slices of lemon in a line and cover them with half of the lemon sauce. Stripe
Add the chicken on top of the slices of lemon, then add the remaining sauce on top and decorate as you like (lemon, sesame seeds...). It can also be served with rice. Stripe
