May/June 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4 (506 votes)

Spiked with lots of zesty lemon, this delectable chicken stir-fry has a colorful mix of snow peas, carrots and scallions. But feel free to substitute other thinly sliced vegetables, such as bell peppers or zucchini. Serve with: Rice noodles or brown rice.



READER'S COMMENT:
"We really were looking forward to eatilng this. Unfortunately, even after reducing the lemon in half, the sauce had way too much lemon for us. I will not be making this again. "

my own twist

i added salt, pepper, a dash of cumin and i squeezed the left over lemon juice on the chicken before i stir fried it. i also noticed many complained of to much lemon well i added more carrots,snow peas and chicken. my family loved this meal so much i had to give a better rating (i used all organic ingrediants)

Very flavorful!

This was a really great dish with a bold, delicious flavor. I used fresh green beans instead of sugar snap peas, but followed the recipe exactly besides this. I will be making this again, my boyfriend also loved it.

Lots of veggies, tastes great, filling

Very Lemony

Overall, this was a good dish- lots of fresh veggies and filling. My husband and I thought the lemon flavor was very overpowering though. Next time I will either half the amount of lemon zest or leave it out all together. Could use a little more spice as well. Good recipe for all those leftover veggies in the house though.

Missing something

Tasting this while cooking it was apparent that it was missing something. The lemon was to subtle and left it a little bland. I added crushed black pepper and sriracha. Made it taste like a much more complete dish.

Easy to make

I took your advice and added

I took your advice and added sriracha & pepper. It made the dish a nice balance of tangy and spicy. Thank you!
