Lemon and garlic roasted chicken
In Canadian Chinese cuisine it usually consists of pieces of chicken meat that are sautéed or deep-fried and coated with a thick, sweet lemon-flavored sauce. The Chinese restaurant of the Panda Hotel in Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong, used to serve its version of Lemon Chicken with the chicken pieces coated in batter, then rolled in almond slivers and deep-fried and served with the lemon-glaze sauce.
A completely unrelated dish from Italy is also called "lemon chicken" (pollo al limone). In this dish, a whole chicken is roasted with white wine, fresh lemon juice, fresh thyme and mirepoix.
In Spain, lemon chicken is similar to the Italian version is called pollo al romero con limón y piñones and is a whole lemon chicken with lemon sauce, pine nuts, rosemary and ham sauteéd together.
In the UK, Chinese restaurants usually serve lemon chicken, comprising deep-fried and battered chicken strips, coated in a thick sweet-and-sour lemon sauce.
