This tangy Chinese Lemon Chicken with custard powder! (yes!) and fruit juices is exactly what it says on the tin. Strictly for die-hard lemon fans – unless you love lemons this recipe will probably not convert you as a new fan. But if you love your lemons… then give this a go. Serve with boiled or fried rice, and sprinkle with chopped chives or spring onions.
A surprising combination, but custard powder is actually commonly used in many Western Chinese lemon chicken recipes. Custard powder is actually only cornflour with a little flavour added and works well as the thickener in this rather more sour than sweet sauce.
