Top-ranked recipe named "True Lemon Chicken"
I wanted to make Lemon Chicken like the Chinese restaurants have. After trying many recipes, I found one that was OK. I played with the recipe and tweeked it to my liking...a Lemon Sauce that is lemony with a good balance of sweet. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

Jenjennifer 2 years agoWow!! I could not get this sauce to thicken! & felt like it was missing a crust on the chicken.
