Chinese-Style Lemon Chicken

Method

Whisk together the eggs and soy sauce. Toss the chicken through so each wing is coated.

Heat oil in a wok to 170°C.

Mix the flours together. Drain excess egg mixture off wings and coat, shaking excess flour off.

In batches, fry chicken for 6-8 minutes until golden and cooked through. Drain on a tray lined with a rack.

Add the lemon sauce into a pan and bring to a boil. Toss fried chicken in sauce until well coated.

Serve on a platter garnished with lemon pieces and spring onions.
