Crispy Chicken with Honey-Lemon Sauce

Crispy Chicken with Honey-Lemon Sauce

The refreshing sweet-sour flavor of the sauce marries well with the crispy-light and juicy chicken.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chicken thigh
1 thigh
Dried basil
Enough to evenly coat the chicken
Grated garlic
1 clove
Cake flour and katakuriko
2 tablespoons each
2 1/2 tablespoons each
100% lemon juice (unsweetened)
2 tablespoons
Salt and pepper
To taste
Vegetable oil
For frying


1. Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and put into a plastic bag along with the grated garlic, salt and pepper, and basil. Rub the bag to season the chicken. Add the cake flour and katakuriko to the bag, and coat evenly.
2. Put a generous amount of vegetable oil into a frying pan and add a little sesame oil if available. Fry the chicken pieces until the coating is crispy. In the meantime, combine the honey and lemon juice with a little salt and pepper in a bowl, and adjust the seasoning and the amount of honey or lemon to your taste.
3. Once the chicken is crispy and cooked, take it out of the pan and quickly mix with the honey-lemon sauce while hot, and it's done!
4. Cookpad user "Sunagoromo" added lemon peel to the sauce.
