Recipe Ingredients for RD's Lemon Chicken

1/2 lb chicken
1 egg white
2 tsp cornflour
1 tbsp olive oil
150 g lemon (juice from 3 lemons)
2 fl oz chicken stock
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp soy sauce
50 g sherry
1 clove garlic
1 red chilli pepper
1 tsp cornflour
1 Spring onions

Recipe Directions for RD's Lemon Chicken

  1. Combine the egg white, cornflour, salt, a little sesame oil and chicken in a bowl - stir to make sure the chicken is well coated. Leave for about 20 minutes.

  2. Heat a wok until very hot, add 250ml oil for deep frying and heat until smoking. Remove from the heat and add the chicken - stir quickly to stop it from sticking and cook until the chicken turns white. Drain the chicken over a heatproof bowl, set the chicken to one side, allow the oil to cool and discard.

  3. Wipe the wok clean and make the sauce. Add the stock, lemon juice, sugar, soy and dry sherry together with the garlic and chilli. Bring to the boil and whisk in the cornflour or arrowroot mixture. Simmer gently for a few moments and then add the chicken. Stir fry to make sure the chicken is well coated and heated through properly.

  4. Add a little sesame oil as final seasoning and serve scattered with spring onions.
