Lemon Chicken


1 egg white, beaten
2 tsp cornflour

  • Combine the egg white, cornflour, ginger and some salt in a bowl and add the chicken, mixing well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a wok or heavy-based frying pan. Drain the chicken, discarding the marinade, and stir-fry until just cooked but not browned. Remove and keep warm.
