I was a chickenitarian (to coin the term) till I traveled to Europe where I experimented to the hilt :)… but Chicken remains my favorite, none the less. So I keep trying out various recipes when it comes to chicken…check this recipe out! But don’t forget to leave me your feedback..!

Boneless and skinless chicken breast – 4 breast halves
Eggs yolk – 2 Nos
Lemon juice – of 2 Nos (big sized)
¾ cup cornflour
1 cup chicken broth
Pepper powder – ½ tsp
½ cup water
3 Tbsp brown sugar
Ginger – 1 tbsp (finely chopped)
Oil for frying
Salt to taste
Spring onions – 2-3 Nos. (finely chopped)

  1. Combine ½ cup cornflour, ¼ portion of water, salt and egg yolks and whisk until smooth
  2. Coat the chicken pieces evenly with the above mixture
  3. Heat oil in a wok and fry the chicken pieces until brown and tender
  4. Remove to absorbent paper and rid all excess oil
  5. Cut cooked chicken into cubes
  6. Take in a pan remaining cornflour, brown sugar and ginger
  7. Add to it broth and remaining water
  8. Cook on medium flame stirring frequently
  9. Cook till the sauce come to a boil and thickens
  10. *Remove from the heat and add lemon juice and stir. Your sauce is ready
  11. Placed the chicken pieces in a serving dish
  12. Pour the sauce over the chicken pieces covering each of the piece nicely
  13. Garnish with spring onions (scallions)
  14. Serve hot with fried rice or noodles

* Lemon juice should be added in the end post all cooking else the gravy might get bitter. Hence its better to put it after removing the cooked sauce off the burner….this is based purely on my personal experience.

Till next time….happy cooking! 🙂
