This dish is very easy to prepare. It has pan cooked chicken breast with a lemon sauce drizzled over the top. Ensure your flours, soy sauce and liquid stock used are all gluten free. I use Massell brand stock and Fountain brand soy sauce as they are currently GF. You can substitute the soy sauce for a gluten free Tamari sauce. Nobody would guess this is a GF dish. Make double quantity of the sauce if you like a lot of sauce to serve
- 4 single chicken breast fillets
- 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
- 1⁄2 cup fine rice flour (or use a plain GF flour)
- 30 g butter
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons gluten-free cornflour (US-cornstarch)
- 1 1⁄4 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄2 teaspoon grated ginger
- 1 teaspoon gluten-free soy sauce
- 1 cup gluten-free chicken stock
- Using a meat mallet or your rolling pin, gently pound the chicken between sheets of cling-wrap until 1cm thick.
- Dip chicken in the beaten egg white and then coat in the rice flour (or GF plain flour). Shake off any excess flour.
- Heat the butter and oil in a large frypan. Cook chicken until lightly browned on both sides and cooked through. Drain on absorbent kitchen paper.
- Meanwhile- blend the cornflour, brown sugar and the lemon juice in a small saucepan. Add the grated ginger, soy sauce and the stock. Bring the sauce to the boil and stir constantly until the sauce thickens.
- Slice the chicken,serve drizzled with the sauce and some extra lemon wedges or slices.
Delicious! I had two chicken breast fillets and three chicken tenderloins in the fridge so I used them all to make this recipe. I used GF plain flour because it was all I had at home but then kept to the written recipe. The chicken was tender and the sauce was wonderful. Thank you **Jubes**
Yum! This recipe is so good! Very easy (I'm usually pretty useless in the kitchen and I managed to pull it off). Tastes very similar to the lemon chicken from my favourite restaurant. Is also a nice recipe when the chicken is replaced with fish. Thank you!
Made For Welcome to Asia -- don't forget your fork, ZWT4 2008. A Quick and delicious recipe. Followed the recipe completely, the chicken was tender and flavourful, and the Lemon sauce, with a little added crushed red pepper flakes, since we like it a little hot, was delightful. Thanks!
