Almond Chicken With Lemon Sauce
The Grand Formosa Regent Hotel, Taipei, Taiwan

Makes 4 servings

  2 boneless, skinless chicken
 breasts, halved
  1/2 cup cornstarch
  2 eggs, beaten
  1 cup sliced almonds
  1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  1+1/2 tablespoons sugar
  2 teaspoons cornstarch
 dissolved in 1 tablespoon cold
  2 tablespoons vegetable oil

 1. Dredge the chicken breasts thoroughly in the cornstarch. Dip each one
 into the eggs, then in the almonds, coating well. Chill until needed.

 2. In a nonreactive* small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the
 lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, and dissolved cornstarch. Cook, stirring
 constantly, until the mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Remove from the
 heat and set the dipping sauce aside.

 3. In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat the vegetable oil
 until hot. Add the chicken breasts and sauté for 5 minutes on each side,
 or until cooked through.

 4. Cut the chicken breasts into bite-size pieces. Serve at once, with the
 lemon dipping sauce.

 *A nonreactive saucepan is made of a material that will not interact with
 the acid in the food. Stainless steel, ceramic, glass, and anodized
 aluminum are fine.
