    Tried this after having lemon chicken with noodles from our local takeaway. This was certainly as good and easier than I had imagined. Emptied plates all round at our house so it was certainly a winner.

    Awesome. Only thing I don't have a gas stove... Takes longer 😏

    Nice flavour and easy to make. Next time I would probably use 2 lemons as there was hardly any lemon flavour.

    Nice alternative to a takeaway, tastes authentic. Do more sauce
