Happy New Year everyone. Shall we start the year with a recipe?
I’ve been trying to find a chicken meal that appeals to both boys. Son1 loves chicken curry best which son2 hates, although he loves plain chicken. And now I think I’ve found the answer with Lemon Chicken.
Ingredients (serves 4)
450g diced chicken
1 large lemon or 2 small lemons
100 ml chicken stock
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp cornflour
1 tbsp plain flour
2 tsp olive oil
Grate the zest from the lemon and then squeeze.
Mix together the lemon juice, chicken stock, honey and soy sauce in a jug.
Mix in the cornflour.
Stir in the lemon zest.
Microwave for about 1-2 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Meanwhile tip the plain flour into a flat dish.
Add the chicken and turn several times until it is fully coated in flour.
Add the oil to a wok and gently heat.
Add the chicken and fry for about 10 minutes.
Add your choice of vegetables and fry for about 5 more minutes until vegetables soften.
Stir in the sauce and cook for about 2 more minutes.
Serve with fried sliced potatoes and enjoy.
I’d love to hear what is your favourite chicken meal?
