There are two different variations of Chinese lemon chicken commonly prepared by Chinese restaurants all around the world. One version is deep fried chicken pieces, covered with a thick and sweet lemon sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds. Another version especially popular in Australia is coating chicken breasts in batter, deep frying them and served with lemon-glazed sauce. For my gluten free version of this well-liked Chinese takeout dish, I am pan frying the chicken breasts marinated with spices and coated with gluten free corn (maize) flour. Then the chicken will be served with a lemon-glazed sauce. This recipe is not only gluten free, but also soy free and egg free.

Lemon is an excellent source of vitamin C and moderate source of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and potassium. Health benefits of lemon include: may help prevent kidney stones, reduce cardiovascular diseases and strokes, reduce risk of cancers, treat indigestion and constipation and prevent risk of anaemia by aiding the absorption of iron.
