Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (432 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.

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

OJ instead of chicken broth

I have made it a few times using the original recipe and it has been very good. I made it last night and realized after starting that I didn't have any chicken broth in the house, so I decided to use orange juice instead. It made it much more flavorful and citrusy, without becoming overwhelming. I will be sticking with the modified recipe now!

Easy

Healthy, easy and good for you

This was an easy meal to prepare and fast to cook. I used all the ingredients listed, but used real lemon juice instead of an actual lemon. You can control the lemon flavor easier that way. The only alteration I would make to the list of ingredients is to halve the corn starch. I served it with Udon noodles. You know it's good when my husband goes back for seconds!
