Marinate the chicken breasts in the soy sauce for 30 minutes very clean and cut in half so they are not so thick. Mix the other tablespoon of cornstarch with the beaten egg and with that mixture we breach the drained breasts and fry them until golden brown.
We cut the breasts into small strips to make it easier for the diner to eat them with chopsticks. In a bowl, we put the three lemon slices aligned and cover them with half of the lemon sauce.
We place the chicken on top of the lemon slices, We pour the rest of the sauce on top and decorate with some strips of lemon peel and edible flowers, taking it to the table immediately so that it arrives very hot.
