1/4 cup Corn starch
1/4 cup Flour
1 large Egg
1/4 cup Water
1/4 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Lemon juice
1/4 cup Water
2 drops Yellow food coloring (optional)
1 tablespoons Corn starch
2 tablespoons Water
1 pound Chicken breast slice thin lengthwise
3 Cup Peanut oil for deep frying
2 cup Lettuce shredded
1 medium Lemon sliced thinly

Preparation / Directions:

Mix cornstarch, flour and egg. Add enough water to make smooth batter (au rouban). Bring sugar, lemon juice, water and food coloring to a boil. Mix cornstarch with water and add gradually to boiling mixture until sauce thickens. Cover and reduce heat to warm. Heat oil to 375F. Dip chicken in coating and drop into oil. Brown in oil for 3-4 minutes. If pot is small, fry in two batches so that temperature of oil does not drop too much on addition of meat, and allow oil to reheat between batches. When second batch is almost done, put first batch back in to reheat. Remove meat from oil, drain on paper towels. Serve on bed of shredded lettuce with sauce over or on side. Garnish with sliced lemon.
