How to make it
- Cut the chicken in half, lengthwise. Mix each piece with salt, egg and cornstarch. Let chicken set for 10 minutes.
- Deep fry the chicken until golden and done. About 1 to 2 minutes. Do not over cook. *If you don't want all that fat, spray a large frying pan with cooking oil.
- Heat pan to medium-high heat. Lay each chicken piece and sear. Place in a 9 x 13 pan coated with cooking spray. Heat oven to 400 degrees and bake the chicken pieces until golden. About 20 minutes. Try not to over cook.
- To make the sauce:
- Cook the lemon juice and butter in a medium hot saucepan, stirring well until the butter melts; then put the sliced lemon in the pan and add sugar or the honey. In a small bowl, mix the water and cornstarch and add to the sauce. Cook and stir until thickened. Pour over the chicken pieces and serve with steamed or fried rice.
