Guess what a significant ingredient in ‘lemon chicken’ is

Guess what I forgot to put on my shopping list last Friday, and didn’t remember about until AFTER finishing my grocery shopping on Saturday

Yep xD

My parents were able to spare a couple of lemons, though, so it was all right in the end 🙂

I’ll be making lemon chicken (from a recipe in Hairy Dieters: Good Eating — you can find it in the Google Books preview of that book) tomorrow — I’m rather looking forward to giving the ‘velveting’ technique a go — beat the white of one egg together with a teaspoon or so of cornflour to make a thinnish paste (saving the yolk of the egg in a jar or something to make scramble the next day), add 400-600g chicken, thinly sliced (though velveting works with any sort of meat), stir until al the bits are covered in the paste, cover the bowl with clingfilm and leave for 20 mins in the fridge, then quickly stir fry over a high heat until the chicken is cooked. The cornflour/egg mixture should form a thin batter which helps stop the meat from drying out. Sounds fun 🙂
