Lemon Chicken

This Lemon Chicken is FABULOUS...so good that I even ate it cold, right from the fridge. I have eaten Lemon Chicken at Chinese restaurants and have never found any that I liked as much as this! It packed with flavor and all the yumminess that makes your mouth water...its a winner at my house! WE LOVE IT!!

Lemon Chicken
8 skinless, boneless chicken breast (cut into small cubes)

Marinade:
4 T. soy sauce
1 t. salt
Place chicken pieces into a bowl and mix with soy sauce and salt. Stir. Cover and set in the refrigerator for 45 minutes.

Batter:
4 eggs
1/2 c. cornstarch
1 t. baking powder
1/4 t. pepper
Oil (for frying)
Beat eggs and cornstarch. Add pepper and baking powder. After chicken is done marinating, coat the chicken with batter. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees. Deep fry chicken until it is cooked completely. Drain oil and place chicken pieces on a paper towel. Continue until all chicken is fried. 

Lemon Sauce:  
1 c. sugar 
3 c. chicken broth
4 1/2 T. cornstarch
6 T. lemon juice
2 1/4 t. salt
6 T. oil
1 lemon, peeled and sectioned
yellow food coloring (enough to turn the sauce a nice lemony color)

Combine sugar, cornstarch, chicken broth, lemon juice, food coloring and salt. Stir. Heat 6 T. oil in a saucepan, stir in sauce. Add lemon sections. Heat until sauce becomes clear and glassy looking. Remove lemon sections. Pour sauce over cooked chicken if desired....OR use to dip chicken in. Serve with steamed rice and vegetables.
