Honey lemon chicken

Honey Lemon Chicken
 - simple and easy.

1/2 kg skinless, boneless chicken
Oil for frying(I used sunflower oil - avoided mustard oil)

Make batter of:
2/3 cup plain flour
1/3 cup cornflour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Salt as per taste
Pepper as per taste
2 egg whites
1/4 cup milk
Pinch of cinnamon

For Sauce:
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 cup clear honey
1 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Cut chicken into small(bite-size) pieces
  2. Marinate overnight with salt and lemon juice
  3. Make batter - should be quite thick, because fluid from the chicken will thin it out.
  4. Dip chicken into batter
  5. Fry in a non-stick pan till golden brown
  6. Remove and drain
  7. Mix honey, butter and lemon juice, warm slightly
  8. Serve hot, pour honey sauce over the fried chicken on the plate 
I wish I had pics, but no camera here :(.
I found that just the fried chicken dumplings tasted really nice - this could be a nice evening snack if you roll the dumplings in breadcrumbs before frying. Otherwise, tastes nice with rice noodles(stir-fried with bits of chopped boiled veggies added) or even just roti.
Another option which will completely change the taste around is to add soya sauce, basil and some herbs to the honey instead of lemon.

I'm longing to try this out again, and carry out the combinations and alterations in my head :)
