Passover Lemon Chicken

This is one of my favourite Pesach chicken dishes as it ticks all the boxes for the ideal family evening meal ~  quick to make, requires few ingredients and more over very tasty and everyone loves it!

The chicken is coated in an egg white and potato flour mixture before it is stir fried. The tart lemon sauce goes very well with the delicate flavour of the chicken. Unlike many versions which have a cloying sweetness, this recipe balances tartness with sweet.

I like to serve it with spring onion mash potato and shredded spring cabbage~just perfect to soak up the tasty sauce.

Please ensure all ingredients are suitable before purchasing them.

  1. 1

    Combine the chicken pieces with the egg white, garlic and potato flour in a bowl. Chill in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.

  2. 2

    Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan until moderately hot. Add the chicken pieces in batches and stir fry them quickly in the oil to keep them from sticking.
