Lemony Snickets Chicks (Lemon Chicken Bites)

lemonchickenbites


Lemon Sauce:
1/2c Powdered Sugar (Confectioners Sugar)
1/4tsp Garlic Powder
1/8c+1T Fresh Lemon Juice (More to taste)
1/4tsp Fresh Lemon Zest
2T Honey
1/2c Hot Water
1 Chicken Broth Cube (Crushed added to hot water)
1tsp Rice Vinegar
1/16tsp Ginger
Premake sauce earlier, set in fridge. Place 3-4 frozen chicken breasts in a bag with few squirts of Fresh Lemon Juice and splash of Soy Sauce. Marinade til thaw.

1/3c Vegetable Oil, for frying (Try Coconut Oil- I have yet to try it, tho)
2 Eggs, Beaten

Batter Mixture:
1c Cornstarch (You could probably get away with less)
1/2tsp Garlic Powder
Up to 1/4tsp Course Black Pepper
Good pinch of Sea Salt
1/2tsp Onion Powder
1/4tsp Paprika

Preheat oven 350. Cut chicken into 1 inch cubes. Pour the starch over the chicken and toss til coated, I’m not pretty about it. Then I Distribute eggs over battered chicken. Lightly toss. (I find this easier than dipping them into the egg and losing most batter on my fingers.)
Heat oil in large skillet. Cook chicken until browned. Place in baking dish. SQUIRT with Fresh Lemon Juice. Pour lemon sauce evenly over chicken. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Turn chicken, bake for 15 more minutes. Squirt with a little more Fresh Lemon Juice. Allow to set and thicken some. Serve with 2.5c rice, cooked in Chicken Broth, pinch of sea salt, and mixed with 1c frozen Peas.

Healthier Version (Skipping deep fry coating): Make sauce, skipping powder sugar and adding a little more honey and a LITTLE sugar (To taste)- To sweeten. Cook chicken in A LITTLE EVOO (Or butter flavored cooking spray). Add in sauce, stirring, til thickened… OR: Fry in LITTLE EVOO, add to baking pan with sauce, then bake 350 15minutes. Toss, bake 15more minutes.

  1. Can I add some Mediterranean herbs in here? Plz suggest…

  2. Feel free to tweek the recipe. This has a lemon WITH honey flavor to it. Any season that would compliment that would work. It also depends if you’d like to smooth it out or kick it up (Lemony side). Let us know if you try something out and it works!
