I love lemon chicken!!!...
I just finished a 9 months contract with a Persian restaurant where I made a Chicken Kebab... a simple marinade of "fresh" (please!) squeezed lemon juice, pass an onion through the food processor till juice consistency... add some saffron... which will make the chicken a nice yellow color... and marinate for at least 24 hrs in a cooler... skewer and voila!
We grilled some colored peppers and red onions separately with salt.pepper.sumach mixture... on the plate when done... one chicken... one vegi... one chicken... you get the picture... right?
I have also another Rx of a Pecan Crusted Chicken marinated initially in burned sesame oil with lots of lemon juice... 24hrs... and then baked with a basil/parmesan/pecan crust/mixture... at 550!... quick... keeping the chicken incredibly moist... I can look for it if you need it... or want it!!!
Be well... Ara

I am very interested in a Chinese style Lemon Chicken recipe! I used to eat it about 8 years ago at a restaurant and can't figure out how to make it myself or find it anyplace else that's even close to being as good.

Seems like to me, they made the breaded chicken like for sweet and sour but then used a lemon sauce over it. It's been about 8 years since I last had it so I might be wrong. LOL

Even though I'm Chirish, the lemon chicken I make (and my wife's favorite) is more French.

Lightly seasoned and floured boneless chicken breast.
Brown in a saute' pan with a little olive oil & butter.
Add sliced mushrooms, cook until lightly browned.
Deglaze with white wine.
When chicken is almost done, squeeze fresh lemon, add chopped green onions, adjust seasoning, and finish with butter.

Love this over steamed rice.

Yum freakin' yum.

Jim,
Sounds like the lemon chicken I do and it is de-lish. My question is: what exactly is “Chirish”?

Italian Lemon Chicken

Colour chicken thighs in an oven tray place on the hob, then turn skin side up. The chicken should be a reasonably tight fit in the tray
Halve some lemons, squeeze the juice over the chicken then add the lemons to the dish - season then place in the oven.
Add some fresh basil to the dish about 10 minutes before it is done
When cooked, discard the lemons, remove the chicken then deglaze the pan with white wine.

Why, it's obviously half Chinese, half Irish.:smiles:

Thanks for linking this recipe for Orange Chicken. I have a real bad addiction to Panda Express's Orange Chicken, and I have been looking for a copy cat recipe for a long time to no avail. Although I haven't tasted this one, it definately looks promising. The picture looks like it, and judging by the the amount of sugar in the recipe this just may be the one I was hoping to find.

Ok, I'll raise my clueless flag here. What on earth is motor car flour?
