Recipe Description:

A popular staple of Chinese restaurants over here, lemon chicken has had trouble defending itself against accusations of inauthenticity and pandering to British tastes. And to that we say, first of all, that it’s a bright, fresh take on the sweet-sour flavour mix. Second of all, the dish likely originated in the cha chaan teng (humble ‘tea restaurants’) of Hong Kong, and can still be found in a few of the city’s favourite local haunts. The key to a good lemon chicken is not to overdo it: it’s all about the balance of the lemon’s acidity with a reasonable sprinkle of sugar, both supporting, rather than overpowering, the chicken’s inherent savouriness.
