    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Tempura-style battered chicken tidbits soaked in a lemon glaze --- this can also be make using a meaty fish such a cod or halibut cut into small pieces, if you prefer a less sweeter glaze then reduce the sugar by a couple tablespoons --- serve with rice :)

      This was a very good Lemon Chicken. I made half a recipe with one chicken breast and one lb. halibut. I liked the chicken better but both were very good. Served with rice and broccoli.

      This recipe does not taste much like what I order at the local Chinese restaurant. It's almost like ... lemonade chicken. But, it will say, it is extremely delicious! My young kids both had thirds and my husband went back for seconds. Also, I only used 1.5 lbs of chicken and put the extra sauce on top of the rice.

      Very Yummy and easy to make. The only changes made was that I added extra lemon juice and stock because I liked the sauce a bit thinner and more lemon flavoured.Also I used chicken tenderloins, the chicken just melts in your mouth !!.Definetly making this one again !!
