Anyway, since it is the new year, Grace suggested I try a Chinese dish. So I made Lemon Chicken and fried rice.
I just copied this recipe somewhere (sorry, I forgot where), but here's what I did.
1 whole chicken (recipe requires 8 chicken breasts)
4 tbsp soy sauce
salt and pepper
a dash of paprika*
100mL lemon juice
3 slices of lemon
1.5 cups chicken stock
2 tbsp cornstarch
a dash of garlic powder*
sugar and honey* (optional, to taste)
*not in the original recipe
1. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and soy sauce. Leave it for 30 minutes.
2. Pat dry the chicken and dredge it with flour and paprika. Fry the chicken in oil until golden brown. (If you opt to skip the flour and paprika, fry the chicken breasts in butter). When done, leave it on a plate.
3. Combine the chicken stock, lemon, cornstarch, garlic powder and lemon slices (optional: sugar/honey, to taste) in a sauce pan. Boil until thick. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve.
Maybe you have a better version of Lemon Chicken. Now, what did I miss? Hmmm
