Lime soy coated chicken is a produces an incredible combination of flavours. We add a bit or sugar so the dish has the sweet and sour greatness. This is part of our dinner in 30 minute collection which makes it a fantastic midweek meal. The great thing is, most of the ingredients will be hiding right in your pantry and fridge.
You can, of course, adjust the recipe according to your liking to give it that personal touch. To begin with, if you want to add more or less of the spices suggested in the recipes feel free to do so. If you are a garlic lover and want to add more. Consider, however, that the lime and soy sauce are the stars of the dish. You can experiment with the amounts of these ingredients too.
I use vegetable oil to fry my chicken, but you can use the oil of your choice. Sometimes oils such as peanut oil are a bit healthier. Whatever oil you use, try to get it to about 350 degrees F or 177 C.
Give our lime soy coated chicken a try and, as always, let us know what you think.
