Chinese style chicken :: Pollo al estilo chino

Oh dear, chicken won't be a boring ingredient anymore with this recipe. I made it for the first time and it turned out delicious so I am here to share it with you all:

Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 400 gr. of chicken breast
  • Sunflower oil
  • Breadcrumbs
For the marinade
  • 1 egg
  • 30 ml. of soy sauce
For the sauce
  • 100 ml of chicken broth
  • 30 ml. of apple vinegar
  • 40 gr. of sugar
  • 10 gr. of corn flour
  • 5 ml. of soy sauce
  • 1/2 of lemon juice
  • Lemon slices

First of all, clean the chicken and slice it. Now, let's go for the marinade. Break the egg and whisk together with the soy sauce. 
Soak the chicken breasts in it, cover and reserve in the fridge for 1 hour. However, you can leave it overnight and continue with the recipe the day after.

Meanwhile, we will go for the sauce. Pour the chicken broth n a bowl and add the corn flour. Stir until dissolved.
Grab a pot and the rest of the ingredients for the sauce: the apple vinegar, the sugar, the soy sauce and the lemon juice. 
Bring everything to boil. Once it is boiling pour the broth and corn flour mixture. We will stir for a few minutes until the sauce thickens and will reserve it.

After, minimum, 1 hour, take the chicken out of the fridge and it will be time to cook it. Add a lot of breadcrumbs in a plate and batter each chicken breast. Following, cover a pan with sunflower oil and fry them to medium heat. We want them to be cooked but also to look brown. Display them in a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.

Serving time ! Place the chicken breast in a nice platter and spread some Chinese sauce on them. I can tell you: you will love this dish!
