directions

Step 1

Cut the boneless chicken leg into small, two bite pieces and place in a bowl. Squeeze the lemons into the bowl, enough to cover the chicken and let it marinate.

Step 2

Mix all your dry ingredients (tempura flour, salt, dry yeast) for the tempura batter, and slowly add water until you have a beautiful thick batter. Cover with a damp tea towel and let rise for 45 minutes.

Step 3

Remove your chicken from the marinade and pat dry. Mix into the tempura batter until the chicken is fully coated.

Step 4

In a medium pan heat the olive oil. Once the oil is hot place the battered chicken in the pan and fry for 2-3 minutes, until beautifully golden.
