  • 1 kg of chicken breast
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 60 ml white wine
  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • oil for frying

For the lemon and orange sauce

  • 250 ml of chicken stock
  • 85 ml soy sauce
  • the juice of three lemons
  • the juice of an orange
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • half a teaspoon of salt
  • 4 tablespoons of water + 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • the stem of two fresh onions
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
  • long boiled rice


Chop chicken into pieces of about 2 cm and put it in a large bowl. I put it in my gorgeous Staub cocotte.

Beat eggs, soybean, 3 tablespoons of cornstarch and wine in a bowl and add to the chicken. Move well. Cover and marinate for 30 minutes.

Put chicken pieces drained (pulling the marinade), in a frozen or large zip bag. Add the remaining cornstarch to the bag, close and shake to completely cover chicken. Prepare a large plate and cover with paper towel. Book

Heat the oil in a pan and when it is ready, to about 180 degrees, fry the chicken pieces until browned (about 3-4 minutes). You will see that the cornstarch makes they extra crispy.

Put the pieces already fried on the plate with a paper towel.

In the cocotte put broth, sauce of soy, lemon juice, garlic, sugar, honey and salt and beat to mix well. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. In a small bowl mix the water) and the cornstarch until dissolved. Add to the boiling sauce and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook without stopping moving until it thickens.

Add the chicken to the casserole and move with the sauce until it is very hot. Serve our lemon chicken Chinese style on a little long boiled rice and a fresh green onions cut finely. Decorate with a few thin slices of orange or lemon
