“Chicken”
 160g Heura Original Chunks (1 pack), thawed at room temperature
 1 tbsp Shaoxing wine or other rice wine like sake or mirin (optional)
Lemon Sauce
 1/4 cup lemon juice, from 1 large lemon
 3-4 tbsp maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
 1 tbsp soy sauce
 Pinch salt
 Pepper
 1/2 tbsp neutral oil
 2 cloves garlic, minced
Cornstarch Slurry
 1/2 tbsp corn starch
 1 tbsp water
Coating and Cooking
 2 tbsp corn starch
 Neutral oil, for frying
 Thinly sliced lemon
1

In a bowl, place the Heura chunks. Add in the rice wine (if using) and mix well. Allow to sit for 3-5 minutes.

2

Meanwhile, prepare the lemon sauce by mixing everything into a bowl. Feel free to adjust the sauce to your desired taste.

3

In a small bowl, mix together the corn starch and water until you have a slurry. Set aside.

4

Heat a large pan or wok over medium heat. Add some oil to submerge at least half of the “chicken” chunks. While your pan is heating, add the corn starch into the “chicken” pieces. Mix to evenly coat well.

5

Test out the heat of the oil by adding a small piece. It should immediately bubble when placed.

6

Add in the coated “chicken” chunks and leave to cook in the oil for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Flip over, if needed, to cook the remaining side. Once golden brown and crispy throughout, remove the pieces from the oil. Drain any excess oil.

7

Remove the oil from the pan/wok, but leave some to coat the pan.

8

Pour in the lemon sauce over medium low heat. Allow the sauce to come to boil. Once it bowls, lower the heat. You can add additional lemon slices, if desired.

9

Add in the fried “chicken” pieces. Pour in the cornstarch slurry. Mix well until the sauce thickens from the slurry and glazes the pieces. Turn off the heat.

10

Serve your lemon “chicken” and enjoy with steamed rice, if desired.
