Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Chicken

30 oz (raw) Chicken
116 grams Lemons
3 serving Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
4 tbsp Corn Starch
3 serving Extra Virgin Olive Oil
5 medium (4-1/8" long) Onions, Spring Or Scallions
2 cup, sliced Squash, Summer, Crookneck And Straightneck
0.25 cup Sugars, Granulated
0.25 cup, diced Celery

Recipe Directions for Lemon Chicken

  1. Put the chicken in a bowl and toss with the soy sauce. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.

  2. To make the sauce, whisk together the lemon zest and juice with the sugar, water and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly until thickened, then keep warm.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan. Whisk together the egg yolk and cornstarch in a small bowl to make a batter. Toss the chicken in the batter and fry for three to four minutes on each side until golden and cooked through.

  4. Transfer to a plate and spoon the warm lemon sauce over the chicken. Scatter the scallions over the dish before serving.
