Lemon Chicken (Chinese Style)

If you usually go to Chinese restaurants, you probably tried their famous lemon chicken, crispy, juicy and with bittersweet sauce a bit thick... Well, today we give you the keys to prepare it at home.

Ingredients for 2 servings:
- 2 chicken breasts 
- Bread crumbs
- Olive oil
- 2 thin slices of lemon

For the sauce:
- 7 oz chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons of vinegar
- 8 teaspoons of white sugar
- The juice of a lemon
- 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon of soy sauce

- In a glass, mix some of the cold chicken broth with the cornstarch and stir well until it dissolves.
- In a saucepan, mix the rest of the ingredients of the sauce and heat it until it starts to boil.
- Pour the cornstarch dissolved in the broth and stir continuously until the sauce thickens.
- Cut two lemon slices as thin as you can and then decorate the plate. Make a cut from the center to the outside so you can fold it later.
- Roll the chicken breasts in breadcrumbs.
- Fry them in a frying pan with plenty of hot olive oil until they brown.
- Place in a dish with absorbent paper to remove the excess of oil.
- Cut the breasts into strips of approximately 2 cm wide.
- Serve placing the strips of chicken with the original shape of the breast and pour over the hot sauce.
- Garnish with the lemon slice bent over.

Bon appétit!
