My family and I didn't like this recipe, they threw it out. I ate it but it wasn't very flavorful, tasted like watered down lemon juice. I do love the calorie count though great to kick start my new diet if I don't give in tonight and go to McD's.

I confess, I am one of those who made some changes. I was aiming for meatless monday, so I used shrimp instead of chicken. I also used bok choy instead of snow peas. The snow peas at the store were very sad looking and the boy choy looked great. I followed the directions, just making the food swaps. The cooking was a tad faster as the shrimp cooks in just a few minutes. I would make this again.
Made this for the first time and followed the recipe with the exception that I replaced the mushrooms with a red bell pepper as my husband is not a fan of mushrooms. It was delicious, zesty and incredibly easy to make. Will be making a larger batch next time for leftovers.
This was one of my favorite recipes from EW. I love the flavor of lemons, and this had a great bold taste but wasn't overpowering.
I might even add more lemon....I added some additional veggies and made it for company that had various health issues and this would work for everyone and everyone loved it. I put it over a small amount of brown rice pasta.
