  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3 chicken breast fillets, cut into chunks
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 sliced spring onions

  • 2 tsp clear honey
  • Pour the soy sauce, lemon juice and sugar in a bowl and add the chicken chunks to marinate for 10-20 mins. Remove the chicken from the marinate and toss in cornflour. Heat half the sesame oil in a wok and stir-fry the chicken until crisp and golden. Transfer to a plate.
  • Add the remaining oil to the wok and fry the onion for 10 mins to soften. Mix the cornflour with a splash of water to make a paste, and stir into the wok with the lemon juice and zest, honey and 200ml water. Bubble until thickened. Add the chicken pieces to the sauce and toss to coat, then stir in the spring onions and sesame seeds. Serve with rice and steamed greens.
