    Default Out for Chinese Tonight

    David surprised me and suggested going out to a Chinese restaurant
    tonight. He will at least eat Lemon Chicken, but nothing else.

    I've had a yen (no pun intended) for some plain old American style
    Chinese food lately, so nothing fancy or exotic. That's easy to find
    in the midwest but not here in Phoenix. However, I have found two
    restaurants that serve up these types of dishes.

    I will order the appetizer platter (egg rolls, spareribs, crab puffs,
    and pot stickers), hot and sour soup, and pork chop suey with steamed
    rice. Lots of leftovers to bring home for myself. They also make a
    great egg foo yung, but that would be pushing the amount of food just
    too far. :-)

    Funny you should mention that. :-) I've been googling for Pork Chow
    Mein recipes. I want to prepare some!

    Craving Chinese food here too.

    None inferred. Yen are Japanese, not Chinese.

    is it the deep-frying that's holding you back? recipes are all over the
    place.

    For those willing to accept something close, Costco (and I'm sure many
    other places) sells Orange Chicken, frozen. You bake the chicken, heat
    the gloppy sauce and then combine to eat. I had it at my sister's
    house, and it was pretty good for quick and easy food.

    Ch

    I deep fry - and do. I've breaded chicken with panko, italian crumbs
    etc. Would like a decent recipe for the sauce .

    PS. Lemon chicken isn't really Chinese! Is it? e.

    This is the only recipe for the Lemon Chicken sauce I have:

    From: 'The Food of China'

    2 tbs lemon juice
    2 tsps sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp dark sesame oil
    3 tbs chicken stock or water
    1/2 tsp cornstarch

    Combine all the ingredients until well-mixed. Bring to a boil, stirring
    constantly until thickened. Add the chicken and toss pieces until
    covered in the sauce.


    It sounds reasonable. A scraping or two of lemon zest wouldn't come
    amiss.

    Heh! Sometimes, even when one knows there is much better Chinese
    food and usually gravitates toward it, one has to do that. BTW,
    my daughter ONLY orders lemon chicken at one of the not great
    Chinese restaurants around here. I have taken to getting moo shi
    veggies to kind-of balance that a bit. She does order other
    things elsewhere, but she will usually have one thing she orders
    at any given restaurant.

    i tend to do that, too. i think it kinda makes sense if you had other
    things there that you didn't like as well.

    i find myself thinking not 'i'll go to this restaurant' but 'i'll go get
    this at this restaurant.'

    but these are not usually high-tone places. i don't have the dough for
    that.

    your pal,
