May/June 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (427 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 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.

Great Lemon Flavor

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.

fast and easy

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.

Easy to prepare, Quick Weeknight Dinner

Very flavorful!

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.

Great flavor, easy to make, healthy

Lots of flavor especially for the calories

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.

easy, flavorfull, healthy
