1/2 cup vegetable stock or water

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 Tbsp cornflour

2 tsp apple juice or dry sherry

2 tsp light soy sauce

1 tsp chilli sauce

1 chicken stock cube, crushed

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

400 g boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips

For Lemon Sauce: Combine vegetable stock, lemon juice, cornflour, apple juice, soy sauce, chilli sauce and chicken stock cube in a small bowl until smooth. Set aside.

I substituted lemon juice for lemon cordial and added 1 tablespoon of sweet chilli sauce - it tastes like sweet and sour chicken. Yum.
