This is an easy authentic Chinese lemon chicken just like you would find in a Chinese restaurant. I have recently changed the batter for this recipe. I tested many variations and found this one to be the best.
Turned out great - would perhaps use brown sugar rather than granulated next time! Getting the right oil temp is a bit tricky. My first batch is always darker than the rest, so make sure the oil is hot enough to cook it through, but not so hot to just cook the outside.
