Stir Fry Lemon Chicken

Every time we go to the Chinese restaurant hubby always pick the lemon chicken. Lemon chicken is one of his ultimate favorites, so one time I opted to make the recipe I found on the internet. Have you ever had lemon chicken before? Who doesn't love sweet 'n' tangy, battered 'n' deep fried, Chinese-style lemon chicken?

Here's the recipe for you.
4 teaspoons peanut oil
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts - cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-wide strips

BATTER
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
fine sea salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 tablespoon finely minced or grated fresh ginger
2 extra-large egg whites
1/2 cup ice-cold water

LEMON SAUCE
fine zest of 1 large lemon
juice from 2 large lemons - approximately 6 tablespoons
1/2 cup fat-free chicken broth
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons white corn syrup
3 tablespoons distilled/pure white vinegar
1-1/2 teaspoons canola or corn oil
fine sea salt to taste
2 large cloves garlic - finely minced or grated
1-1/2 tablespoons cold water
4 teaspoons cornstarch


You can garnish(optional) it with thinly sliced green onion, sliced lemon, and sliced carrots.

I agree. Lemon chicken has that appeal. I've tasted lots of versions already. Some tasted strong. Some seemed bland. I prefer the version with the kick. The more na parang nakakalasing, the better.
