Lemon Chicken

Where’s the Chicken?

My main man HD Thoreau wrote, “Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify, simplify! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb-nail.” I have done this with my lemon chicken recipe, which I have been obsessed with for years.

Sauce

Juice of one large Meyer Lemon (or two smaller other lemons)

Sugar

That’s it. MJ and I ate this dish a hundred times at a Chinese restaurant in Tuscaloosa, and it took me years to realize the Zen truth of simplicity.

Chicken

Cubed Chicken Breast

Cornstarch

Salt and Pepper

Peanut Oil

The last is for deep frying, and an inch and a half is enough. Serve with rice and green peas. Nosh away, as this is fantastic.

Just writing this makes me hungry again.
