Crispy sesame lemon chicken

1 Min Read

Make our crispy sesame lemon chicken for a quick, easy and flavour-packed family dinner. Scatter with spring onions and serve with your favourite sides.


  • STEP 1

    To make the sauce, tip the cornflour into a bowl and whisk in the lemon zest and juice until any lumps disappear. Add the honey, soy, sesame seeds and sesame oil and mix again. Set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Combine the cornflour, flour, baking powder, ¼ tsp salt, the pepper, beaten egg and 4 tbsp water in a large bowl. Tip in the chicken pieces, gently tossing to coat.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the vegetable oil over a high heat and fry the battered chicken pieces in batches for 6 mins per batch until golden and cooked through. Remove the cooked chicken and transfer to a plate or tray lined with kitchen paper.

  • STEP 4

    When all the chicken has been cooked, return all of it to the pan, still over a high heat, pour in the sauce and toss to coat – the sauce will thicken and cling to the chicken. Scatter with the spring onions and serve with noodles, if you like.
