Easy Lemon Chicken Recipe

Got this from a friend who got it from her mom. I watched her make this in less than 30 minutes — thanks K. Chin, NJ!

KC’s Easy Lemon Chicken Masterpiece

4 skinned and boned chicken breasts
2 egg yolks (separated from whites*)
dash salt and pepper
2 lemons
2 T. sugar
1 1/2 c. water
1 1/2 t. constarch
2-3 drops yellow food coloring (optional – but believe me will look a lot better)

1) Marinate chicken with egg yolk, salt and pepper
2) Coat chicken with cornstarch and pan fry both sides until cooked and set aside.
3) Make lemon sauce by mixing lemon juice, sugar, water and cornstarch. Heat sauce mixture on high heat and boil until the sauce thickens. Add 2-3 drops of yellow food coloring.
4) Slice chicken breasts into strips. Pour lemon sauce over chicken. Garnish with lemon and serve.

Serves 4

(* True grubbers…fry up those egg whites separately and sprinkle some hot sauce on there!)
