Lemon Chicken

Lemon Chicken

When I was a kid I loved MSG, I mean Chinese food! Eventually I became more interested in the more “authentic” Chinese food and would order off the “Other” menu that they brought to those who know to ask for it – a menu without chicken balls. Anyway, I came up with these wings, similar to my honey garlic and BBQ deep-dried cauliflower wings from my recipe book. These wings tasted just like lemon chicken! They were sweet and tangy, a new favourite! And they are a quick and easy recipe to make.

  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 3-4 ataulfo mangoes
  • 2-3 dates
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 1 small avocado


  1. First break up the cauliflower into bite sized pieces and place in large mixing bowl.

  4. Place the coated cauliflower onto a teflex drying sheet.
