Japanese-Style Lemon Chicken

INGREDIENTS: (2 servings)

1 chicken breast
1 egg
1/2 tsp salt
1 lemon
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp water
2 tsp potato starch
1/4 potato starch
1/4 cup all purpose flour
sesame seeds
lemon slices, cut into quarters (optional)


Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces and put into a bowl. Separate the egg and add the egg white into the bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well with your hands. Set aside for 10 minutes.

Next, squeeze out the juice of one lemon. Add in soy sauce, honey, water and potato starch. Mix well until no lumps.

Add in 1/4 cup of potato starch to your chicken mixture and toss to coat well. Add in 1/4 cup of flour and mix to combine.

Deep-fry the chicken pieces in hot oil for 3 minutes. Flip them over and cook for another 3 minutes or until they are done. Drain on paper towels. If you like your chicken extra crispy, put the chicken pieces back into the hot oil for 30 seconds, making sure to drain on paper towels to remove excess oil.

To make the sauce, give the sauce mixture a quick mix to make sure the ingredients are combined. Pour into a saucepan and cook over low heat until the sauce has thickened. Add in the chicken pieces and toss to coat. Add in lemon slices for extra flavor. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle on some sesame seeds. Serve immediately with some hot rice.
