New Year’s Eve Supper 2021

New Year’s Eve has for quite a few years been a quiet evening for us. Going out partying and feeling crappy the next day we decided was a great idea. I guess as you get older you get a little smarter or you could say we got a little boring. Since covid has basically stomped on big new years celebrations a lot more people that are doing what we have done for years. When we started staying home I decided something nice was a great idea. Some years I have made two different things, one meal for my wife and one for myself. This year we decided one meal for both of us was a good idea.

Lemon chicken is an extremely simple dish to make and it’s just about impossible to make a bad one. You can make it as a cut up coated deep-fried dish or as a slab style like I did, both are actually correct. We like the slab style that is shallow fried. When you do it as a slab style any coating will work. A flattened to a quarter inch chicken breast will cook in about 4 minutes on each side so it makes it a simple and quick supper to make. You can pour the lemon sauce over it and it makes it look pretty, but we prefer it as a dipping sauce. I have stated before if you make something that is crisp why make it soggy by pouring a sauce all over it.

Since the coated and fried chicken breast is a simple thing and any you normally make will work I figured the lemon sauce would be the best thing to post. Think over the years I have looked at about 200 lemon chicken sauces and they’re all about the same. Since I am a little different my sauce is a little different too. Again this is my adding into a normal recipe flavours we like.

1/3 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ginger powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

3 teaspoons sugar

1 and 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

Mix everything together in a saucepan and on medium heat cook until thickened.

We had the lemon chicken with rice and stir fried vegetables but stir fried noodles work great also.
