Chinese Lemon Chicken

This dish was pretty good, my lemon sauce was not very yellow so I added a drop of food coloring. I wanted my lemon chicken to look lemony, I may have over done it.

Ingredients:

  • 6 ounces lemon curd

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 3/4 cup flour

  4. Add the chicken pieces to the bag, seal and shake to coat all pieces.
  5. Cook the chicken in batches, shaking off any excess flour before placing in the pan.
  6. You may need to add more oil before all are cooked.
