Banquet Style Lemon Chicken in dark soy sauce

Banquet style……..I worked before in a very busy banquet kitchen where every single meat such as chicken, pork and even fish are fried. Maybe because the restaurant is the number one eat all you can buffet during our time. The fry station is composed of fried chicken of different parts, fried chicken(bone in)with flour coating and fried chicken fillet with coating. Same with pork, fried pork with coating and without coating. As it is very busy, the head chefs just prepare the sauces and toss-up with this fried meats. So, in an instant, approx of less than 5 minutes, you will have this dish. by the way, this dish is and its taste like is a creamy, buttery, salt and sour chicken  ……………………Did you know that the ingredient I used to make this dish sour is lemon? and lemon help relieves a headache after a hefty night out or headache cause of lack of sleep. Sometimes you feel you don’t want to get up in bed. But how if you have an important appointment you simply can’t cancel? Try this,  make a very strong cup of coffee and add the juice of half a lemon. Drink this mixture. That should help. If you are more of a tea person, you need to add three tablespoons of lemon to your tea. ……Before going to bed after having a couple of drinks too many it is a good idea to drink a glass of water with lemon juice.  The lemon is rich with vitamin C which will help decrease the alcohol content in your liver.
