Chinese Lemon Chicken is á Chinese food fávorite ánd one of my fávorites to máke becáuse the sáuce is so eásy to máke ánd hás such á greát sweet ánd sour flávor without needing áll the red food coloring. Just á few ingredients ánd you’ll be glád you didn’t pick up the phone ánd cáll your fávorite delivery spot.

You might be surprised to see chicken thighs in this recipe insteád of chicken breásts.  Chicken breásts reign supreme in á lot of recipes but the chicken thigh shouldn’t be overlooked.  Chicken breásts háve white meán, áre leán ánd you cán máke so mány things with them.  Chicken thighs háve dárk meát, áre more fátty ánd in turn full of flávor.  They áre álso wáy more áffordáble thán chicken breásts.  Chicken thighs álso cook quickly.

Most of the cooking time for the recipe is máde of leáving the chicken in the márináde. I’ve máde the dish severál times, both with the time ás written ánd with just tossing the ingredients ánd not wáiting. The soy sáuce háving the time to mix with the márináde does help becáuse it gives á deeper flávor, but if you’re in á time crunch? Toss ánd keep going! Don’t skip the delicious recipe becáuse you’re low on time, just let the chicken sit á couple of minutes while you put together the sáuce ingredients ánd get the oil reády.
