recipe time!

^ that ^
was dinner.

totally on a whim i decided to google ingredients that i had in my kitchen to see what recipes may match.
just to let you know...i google everything. 
not kidding.
sometimes i find myself googling things that i already know the answer to.

this is what i ended up with. and it was super yummy so i need to share the recipe :)
sorry i didn't take any pictures myself...i just wasn't expecting to blog the recipe!

lemon chicken
for the chicken
-2 large chicken breast fillets cut into bite size chunks
-1 teaspoon soy sauce
-1 egg yolk
-1 1/2 tbs cornstarch
-2-3 tbs vegetable or canola oil
-4 thinly sliced scallions

for the sauce
-1 large lemon, zest and juice (1/4 cup)
-2 tbs sugar
-1/4 cup water
-1 teaspoon cornstarch
-salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Put the chicken in a bowl and toss with the soy sauce. Leave to marinate for 30 minutes.

2. To make the sauce, whisk together the lemon zest and juice with the sugar, water and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly until thickened, then keep warm.

3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan. Whisk together the egg yolk and cornstarch in a small bowl to make a batter. Toss the chicken in the batter and fry for three to four minutes on each side until golden and cooked through.

4. Transfer to a plate and spoon the warm lemon sauce over the chicken. Scatter the scallions over the dish before serving.

I actually direguarded the last step...instead i mixed the chicken into the lemon sauce 
i had made some brown rice so i put the chicken on top of the rice.
as a side i just put together a salad
and kenny made some brussel sprouts
...yes brussel sprouts!
i never liked those little sprouts til i tried them the way kenny makes them- d-lish!

well time to relax and enjoy the rest of my tuesday night :)
