Peking Lemon Chicken with flat noodles

Peking Lemon Chicken with flat noodlesPeking lemon chicken is really simple variation of saucy Chinese chicken. It’s not usually as sour like the ones with lots of vinegar. It’s a good combination of salty, sour, sweet and spicy. The lemon gives it a great tang and goes really well with noodles, rice or just with a fork! Recently I found the Peking chicken mix in a shop and I thought, well, Peking mix is just lemon, soy and ginger, why not try it myself!? And trust me, looking at the pics you can safely say it would taste yummy! So what are you waiting for? Read the recipe and try it this weekend. Do post in the pics on our FB page

I have used the flat egg noodles in my recipe. You can try any noodles you like, even maggi! My vegetarian friends can try this recipe with paneer (cottage cheese) or tofu.
