Your rating: None Average: 4 (507 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.

"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. "

Perfect/Easy Stir-Fry

This stir-fry was wonderful and easy. We did not use any lemon and it still turned out great!!!

Easy, quick, tastes great
Absolutely wonderful!

This was so good, I had to control myself so I wouldn't lick my plate. :) I followed other's advice and cut back on the lemon. I think I used 1/2 the lemon zest called for as well as juice from only 1/2 a lemon. We served it over long grain brown rice and it was awesome!

Delicious, light, healthy
Delicious light stirfry

I added 2 zuchinni and a yellow pepper to the stir fry to make it even healthier. I used the zest of the lemon and ALL of the juice of the lemon as well as 2 tablespoons of garlic. It was absolutely delicious even without rice. We had plenty of sauce, but my family likes to add low sodium salt. So SO good and we will eat it again.

Full of veggies, light fresh summer sauce
A little bland

I really liked the flavors in this dish, but it seemed to light. Seems like there should be more sauce! Good though, I'd make it again and maybe try bell peppers instead.

Very good!

We loved this! I used the zest of 1/2 a lemon, still used the same quantity of lemon juice and also added a Tbsp of hoisin sauce to add some sweetness. I modified the veggies based on what I had on hand...and will make it again.

Tasty, healthy
