Fortunate Lemon Chicken


A delicious chicken meal for you to prepare at home. The lemon sauce is fresh and tangy and somehow I always end up eating too much :-).

It takes a bit to prepare but is worth the effort. And ending the meal with a fortune cookie is great fun - especially if you write your own fortune and make your own cookies (see below).

Fortunate Lemon Chicken

4 whole boneless chicken breasts, skin off
Ѕ cup cornstarch (corn flour)
3 tbls water
4 egg yolks - beaten
salt, pepper
shallots - chopped

Lemon Sauce
Ѕ cup lemon juice
2 tsp powdered chicken stock
2 tbls cornstarch (corn flour)
2 tbls honey
2Ѕ tbls brown sugar
1 tsp grated ginger
1ѕ cups water

For the sauce combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and stir over a low heat until it boils and then thickens.

Cut chicken breast fillets into 3-4 pieces, lay flat and pound slightly.

Place cornflour in a bowl and slowly add the water and egg yolks. Add salt and pepper to your liking.

Dip chicken pieces into this batter, drain well.

Place a couple pieces of the battered chicken at a time into deep hot oil and fry until lightly browned.
