Chinese Lemon Chicken

Tried this last night and it's a keeper! Cooks.com - Recipe - Chinese Lemon Chicken

Great lemony sweet-and-sour flavor, over my beloved Oven-Fried Rice (I've adapted the previously posted rice recipe, re-posted here, below the picture).

Not an aesthetic photo, I'm afraid, but I was in a hurry to dig in!

Lee’s Oven-Fried Rice

3 small onions, roughly chopped (or one very large onion)
2 cups fresh bean sprouts
2 cups fresh snow peas, roughly chopped in about half
1 tsp brown sugar
1 small can chicken broth (14 oz)
2 cups UNCOOKED rice
¼ cup soy sauce

Garnishes:
Green onions
Scrambled eggs

Optional: cooked cubed pork or chicken, shrimp, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots

Mix together all ingredients with the rice (do not pre-cook any ingredients, except for meats, if used) in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Cover with foil and cook for one hour at 350, stirring every 15 minutes.

Mix in chopped green onions and scrambled eggs just before serving.

I don't see any lemon in your recipe. What makes it taste so.
Geat picture, it's making me hungry.

quicksilver, click on the link and you'll see the recipe for the chicken. I used 1/3 of lemon juice, as it called for, plus a little lemon zest as well.

My DW really loves lemon chicken and she like the look of this. Maybe one day though I don't like deep frying.

Qsis, what kind of rice did you use regular rice or a quick cook rice (like Minute Rice)
Just was thinking not enough liquid in it to cook rice.

Regular long grain white rice, letscook.

Evidently, the rice to liquid ratio is what makes it taste and FEEL like fried rice from a Chinese restaurant! I've made it a bunch of times now, and it always comes out perfect. I just use some chopped onion, fresh bean sprouts and chopped scallions.
