Around the World: KFC Hong Kong - New Lemon Fried Chicken

KFC Hong Kong adds their own twist on a popular local dish with new, limited-time Sweet Lemon Crispy Chicken.

The new menu item features a sweet lemon sauce on fried chicken. The dish draws its inspiration from Chinese-style lemon chicken, which typically features crispy fried pieces of boneless chicken with a lemon sauce.

It also not a dish you'd commonly find in China as it's more of a Westernized Chinese dish like chop suey and beef & broccoli. My guess is someone decided to make orange chicken with lemons instead of oranges.

The a la carte price for Sweet Lemon Crispy Chicken comes out to $16 HK ($2.06 US) per piece.
