Lemon Chicken : Recipe

Lemon Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Sliced Lemon Skin
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 0.25 cup White Vinegar
  • 0.25 cup of Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1.5 tbsp Honey
  • 1 tbsp Custard Powder

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Cooking Wine
  • 0.25 tsp Black Pepper

Main Ingredients:

  • Chicken Breasts


This is just for one person, if your making it for more just double up

  1. Cut the lemon skin off and slice into thin slices and place into a bowl
  1. Now Prepare lemon sauce: in a mixing bowl, add thinly sliced lemon skin, sugar, white vinegar, honey, lemon, and custard powder. Stir to mix evenly.
  1. Cut the chicken breast into thin slices and use the back of the knife pounding on each piece to tenderize the meat.
  2. In a mixing bowl, marinated chicken breasts with salt, wine, black pepper powder, cornstarch, custard powder, and egg. I personally like to leave it sitting in this for around 15-20mins.
  1. Now for the coating: Put flour in a tray so that each piece of chicken can be evenly coated with the flour.
  1. Add the coated chicken to a plate for when your ready to do the drying

The Frying:

  1. In a heated wok, deep-fry the chicken at oil temperature 300-350°F (150-180°C)  until slightly golden. The key here is the wok or pan has to be at this high temperature before you start frying the chicken.
  2. Remove the fried chicken from oil. Wait a couple of minutes (this is to let the oil temperature goes up a little.) and re-fry quickly until golden. Remove and drain with a strainer. 

Sauce Prep:

  1. Pour the prepared lemon sauce into skillet, and cook 1 to 2 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened. Stir to loosen particles from the bottom of the skillet.
  1. Once ready plate up and pour the sauce over the chicken.
  1. Serve immediately for the best flavour.

Today was my 1st day doing my Glasgow Craft Beer Tour, and I felt like having a Chinese after it and what better place to come than my favourite in Glasgow.

The Food…

Main Course

Crispy Lemon Chicken £12.50 & Fried Rice £3.0


I have only posted the Lemon chicken photo as you all know what fried rice looks like 🙂

So this was a big change in my normal, plus this is all I had no starter or dessert as I am trying to be good…..trying being the main word.

I have not had lemon chicken for many years, mostly due to Sweet n sour crispy chicken is my fav and that’s all I keep ordering but today I thought let’s be different.

This was very nice, it had a light crisp to it, and the flavour was so good and the chicken perfectly tender.
