    Paja's Note:

    We always loved Lemon Chicken in Chinese restaurants and my cousin found this recipe which is at least as good as the Lemon Chicken you find in most restaurants. It is sweet and tangy and is great served with rice or Chinese noodles and stir-fried vegetables.

      This was great. Finishing the chicken off in the oven made it really tender. I added veggies that I had on hand - carrot, capsicum, eschallots and made a bit more breading to suit my taste. I will make this again.
