Crispy Lemon Chicken

Happy Sunday!  What have you planned for dinner today?  As for me I am craving for something that I had missed for quite sometime - Lemon Chicken.

I am sure when you do a Google search, you will find there are lots of varieties of Lemon Chicken recipes.  But for the common Chinese style, it usually make up of pieces of deep-fried chicken meat that coated with batter and served with a thick and sweet lemon flavor sauce.  

My lemon chicken I have discarded the traditional way of using batter but just corn starch instead.  Reason is to avoid the texture to turn soggy when it coat with the sauce.  I like it to be crispy. 

As for the sauce, I love a greater lemon taste, so I have used not only the juice but also the zest.  I even used the zest for marinating the meat.  So, can you imagine the strong lemon taste in my chicken?  Well, if you are not really into that kind strong taste, you may always adjust to your own taste of flavor.

This recipe is not only can be served as a dish to go with plain white rice but it also a good choice to serve as one of the appetizer or finger food.
