Oven Fried Chicken with Lemon Sauce

Allow at least one chicken breast per person.

Rice flour
Rice Crumbs
Butter or oil
Put about 1/2 cup rice flour into freezer bag, beat a couple of eggs in a dish or small jug, fill a bowl with crumbs. Coat chicken in flour, egg, then crumbs and lay in an oiled baking dish in a single layer. We have butter so I use about 125gm for 7 fillets, melt it and pour over the top. Cook in hottish oven, say 190-200°C until golden brown - approx 40 mins. I have made it by spraying with cooking oil but make sure you give it a good dose. Baste and drain half way through if necessary.

1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp cornflour
3/4 cup hot water
1 tsp citric acid
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 large clove garlic (optional)
sprinkle of parsley (optional)

Mix sugar and cornflour together in a little saucepan. Slowly add hot water and stir until dissolved. Cook until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and add citric acid and salt and stir. If using garlic, sauté it in the microwave and add to the sauce. Serve with mashed potatoes, beans and other vegetables. - Diane
