Step 1: You will need

  • 4 medium chicken breasts - 5cm strips
  • 100 ml lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp sherry
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 5 tbsp corn flour, for dusting
  • 1 1/2 ltr vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp corn flour, for sauce
  • 100 ml chicken stock
  • 1 small bunch of spring onions
  • 1 Wok or medium pan
  • Kitchen roll
  • 1 Colander
  • 1 Bowl
  • 1 Slotted spoon

Step 2: Marinate the chicken

Place the strips of chicken breast in a small bowl and add the sugar, soy sauce, sherry and lemon. Combine well with your hands and marinate for 30 minutes.

Step 3: Drain the chicken

After 30 minutes, drain the juice through the colander into the bowl. Reserve the juice for later

Step 4: Heat the pan

Place the medium pan on a high heat and then pour in the oil. Allow to heat through.

Step 5: Flour the chicken

While the oil is heating, take the chicken strips and dip them in a bowl of corn flour. Shake off excess flour, ensuring the chicken is well dusted before frying.

Step 6: Fry the chicken

Place half of the chicken strips individually into the hot oil and allow to fry for 3 minutes. Remove from the oil using a slotted spoon and put on a plate covered in kitchen roll. Do the same with the other half of the chicken strips.

Step 7: Make the sauce

Put a clean pan onto a medium heat and add the reserved juice. Mix together the chicken stock and remaining corn flour in a small bowl and pour in to the juice, blending with a form. Allow to boil and thicken, stirring occasionally.

Step 8: Assemble

Place the chicken strips onto a serving plate and generously spoon over the sauce. Sprinkle with some spring onions, if liked.
