A Nostalgic Reminder of School Lunch! Lemon Chicken

A Nostalgic Reminder of School Lunch!  Lemon Chicken

This became a Top Recipe on May 30, 2012! I wanted to make my favorite lemon chicken at home! Without deep frying to cut the calories! You can use any kind of meat you like. ♪

Ingredients(8 sticks)

Chicken drumettes or the first joint of a chicken wing
8
■ Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
■ Sugar
2 tablespoons
■ Mirin?
1 tablespoon
■ Lemon juice
2 tablespoons
Salt and pepper
to taste
Katakuriko?
1 tablespoon
Sake
1 tablespoon

Steps

1
These are all the ingredients. Pierce the chicken several times with a fork to make it cook faster, sprinkle with sake and leave for about 10 minutes. This makes the chicken more tender and gets rid of any gaminess.
2
After 10 minutes, season with salt and pepper and coat evenly with katakuriko potato starch flour. This makes the sauce cling better to the chicken.
3
Put some oil in a heated frying pan and start cooking the chicken skin side down over low heat. Turn it over several times to prevent it from burning.
4
As you are frying the chicken, combine the ingredients marked ■ - soy sauce, sugar, mirin and lemon juice.
5
When the chicken is cooked through, add the combined ■ sauce and mix to coat the chicken with it. When the chicken has colored up a bit it's done!!
6
Transfer to a serving dish and serve.♪

I've also created a deep fried version! See Recipe ID: 1855307. I've kept the flavoring simple. Men love the deep fried version. ♡
