500 g chicken thighs cut into cubes
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp cornflour
⅓ cup lemon juice
3 tbsp sugar
½ cup water
2 tsp cornflour
1 tsp lemon zest
¼ cup flour
½ cup cornflour
rice bran oil for frying


Add soy sauce, 2 tbsp cornflour and SIDS CRAZY LEMON to your chicken in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Marinate for 30 minutes.
While the chicken is marinating, add the lemon juice, sugar, water, 2 tsp cornflour and lemon zest to a small bowl and mix then set aside.
Add the flour and ½ cup cornflour to the bowl of chicken and toss to coat.
In a pot with oil about 8 cm deep, heat on medium high to 175°C.
Add the chicken in batches so you don't crowd the pot, or the chicken will stick together and it will lower the temperature significantly causing your chicken to be oily.
Cook chicken until golden brown and when cooked, transfer the pieces to a skillet (this is where we will be tossing with the sauce).
When you finish all the chicken, turn off the oil, turn the skillet onto medium high heat and add the sauce.
Coat the chicken pieces in the sauce and cook for just a few seconds until thickened.
Serve immediately with steamed rice and vegetables.
