Something simple for this months little food and wine matching exercise - Pak Choi with Crispy Lemon Chicken.

I am sure it is not difficult to rustle up a lemon sauce but this recipe, lifted from the March 2007 issue of Fresh magazine, uses 2 packets of Blue Dragon Lemon Sauce. I am sure it is fine... But the soda water is something you cannot substitute, as I have heard several times this week - both on a TV cookery program and direct from a chef.

It is also Chinese New Year so this steamed pak choi and lemon chicken recipe seemed apt. The difficulty with a wine selection will be with the sauce - how sweet is it? And will the wine clash or marry with the flavours of the pak choi?



Pak Choi with Crispy Lemon Chicken (serves 4)
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 50g/2oz plain flour
  • 50g/2oz cornflour
  • 175ml/6fl oz very cold soda water
  • 3 chicken breasts cut into thin strips
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 200g/7oz pak choi trimmed
  • 2x120g packets Blue Dragon Lemon Sauce
Heat the oil in a large pan. Shift the flours into a bowl with a pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre and add, slowly, the soda water. Mix until just smooth.

Dip the chicken into the batter and drop into the hot oil. Fry for 1 minute until crisp. Remove and drain.

Bring a pan of water to the boil and add the lemon juice. Over this steam the pak choi for about 3 minutes.

Serve with the chicken and the lemon sauce decorate with lemon zest.
