1. Whisk together marinade ingredients in a large bowl and mix through the chicken. Marinate for 20 mins.

2. Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients, then toss undrained chicken in cornflour in a large plastic bag or on a tray, pressing cornflour onto the chicken.

3. Place large frying pan over high heat, add oil. When just starting to smoke, add chicken in a single layerer – or do in batches to not overcrowd. Separate chicken pieces with tongs. Cook without touching the chicken for 2–3 mins, or until the bottom is golden. Flip to brown the other side, 2–3 mins. Remove chicken to a warm plate lined with paper towel.

4. Reduce heat to medium and return pan to stove and turn to medium heat. If there is no oil left, add another tablespoon. Add green onion, ginger and garlic and stir fry until fragrant, approx. 30 secs. Add sauce mixture, stirring until it bubbles up. Stir through the lemon juice and zest. Bring back to simmer then return the chicken and toss until coated, approx. 2 mins.

5. Serve with steamed white rice mixed with coriander. Sprinkle with green onions, sesame seeds and extra lemon wedges or slices.
