The classic lemon chicken with crispy chicken thighs and beaten in a sweet and tart sauce makes this Chinese Lemon Chicken recipe a treat. You can skip the delivery and the wait and do it at home!




Ingredients :

  • 1 lb chicken thighs cut into cubes
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/3 c lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 c water
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/4 c flour
  • 1/2 c cornstarch
  • oil for frying

Instructions :

  • Add soy sauce and the 2 tbsp cornstarch to your chicken in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.

  • Add the flour and 1/2 c cornstarch to the bowl of chicken and toss to coat.
  • In a pot with oil about three inches deep, heat on medium high to 350 degrees.
  • Add the chicken in batches so you don't crowd the pot or the chicken will stick together and it will lower the temperature significantly causing your chicken to be oily.
  • Cook chicken until golden brown and when cooked, transfer the pieces to a skillet (this is where we will be tossing with the sauce).
  • When you finish all the chicken, turn off the oil, turn the skillet onto medium high heat and add the sauce.

Ingredients :

  • 1 large head of cabbage, sliced like for coleslaw
  • 2 lbs pork ribs, cut into pieces

  • Add the tomato paste and paprika, and stir well. Place the ribs on top and add about 3 cups of water. (The water should completely cover the cabbage). Cover with a tight lid and cook for 1 1/2 hours on low heat, stirring occasionally, until the meat becomes tender. Taste if the dish has enough salt and adjust, if needed.

#Crock #Pot #Sweet #and #Spicy #Sticky #Wings

Crock Pot Sweet and Spicy Sticky Wings

The sweet and spicy sticky wings of Crock Pot fall from the soft bone in the slow cooker, then wonderfully caramelized with a thick sauce under the grill.




Ingredients :

  • 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, divided
  • 4 pounds chicken wings, halved at joint and wingtips removed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • sesame seeds, optional

Instructions :

  • Place ginger, garlic, 1/4 cup dark brown sugar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce, and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper in a food processor and pulse until a paste is formed.
  • Place chicken wings and paste in crock pot and toss to coat.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours. Use slotted spoon to remove wings and place them in a large bowl lined with paper towels. Discard liquid in crock pot.
  • Let wings cool 20 minutes or you can refrigerate them up to 24 hours.
  • Place oven rack in lower-middle of oven. It should be 10 to 12 inches from the heating element. Turn oven to BROIL.
  • Set a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet and spray rack with cooking spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together water, tomato paste, remaining 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce, and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
  • Pour half of sauce in bowl with chicken wings and gently toss to coat. Place wings skin side up on prepared rack.
  • Broil until wings are lightly charred, about 10 to 15 minutes. Flip wings over and brush with sauce. Broil 3 minutes. Flip and brush with sauce one more time and broil 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Notes

  • Broiling times are estimates. The chicken will already be cooked through so you are just broiling long enough to get a good, charred coating of sauce on the wings. Watch them carefully. If they are not charring, you may need to move the rack closer to the heating element.It helps to drain chicken wings on a layer of paper towels when you remove them form the crock pot. They will caramelize better if excess liquid is removed.
