Easy-Peasy Lemon Chicken

(1)
26Min
Easy

Lemon chicken is a well-known Chinese dish around the world. This wonderful rendition is a refreshing take on a food item that is generally deemed oily and greasy — thanks to the citrus flavours from the lemon sauce that gives it a tangy sensation. Lemon chicken is a sweet and savoury dish that goes well with white rice and steamed vegetables, here’s a simple recipe for you to create this dish at home!

Cut chicken into bite size pieces and mix in MAGGI® CukupRasa™. Prepare the batter by mixing a basic combination of all-purpose flour and cornstarch to retain the crispy texture of the chicken, it ensures that the chicken remains crispy even when lemon sauce is added. In a separate bowl, beat up some eggs. Then, dip chicken in the mixture and then dip it into the egg — follow this sequence until all the chicken pieces are well-coated. After that, deep fry the chicken pieces until golden brown and set them aside. Next, heat the pan, add in oil and stir fry garlic until fragrant. Pour in lemon juice, sugar, water, light soy sauce and MAGGI® CukupRasa™. Let it simmer for a minute and pour in some cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Add in chicken and coat them lightly with lemon sauce, so that every bite of the lemon chicken has a crunch perfected with tangy, sweet flavours that is just right!

Besides using lemon slices and zest as an ingredient for flavouring and garnish, its juice can also be used to tenderise meat and prevent the oxidation of fruits and vegetables.
