Directions

  1. Grate 1 teaspoon lemon zest and set aside. Juice the lemon and whisk 3 tablespoons of the juice with broth, soy sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate with tongs. Add mushrooms and carrots to the pan and cook until the carrots are just tender, about 5 minutes. Add snow peas, scallion whites, garlic and the reserved lemon zest. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Whisk the broth mixture and add to the pan; cook, stirring, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add scallion greens and the chicken and any accumulated juices; cook, stirring, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

This was very tasty. The only recommendation I would have is perhaps to double the amount of sauce. It was plenty to coat the chicken and vegetables, but there was not enough juice remaining to spoon onto the pasta, leaving the pasta dry. I will make it again, my husband enjoyed it.

Fantastic sauce. stir fry is one of my favorite ways to cook fresh veggies always looking for new and easy sauces anything but the standard soy sauce. this sauce fits the bill.
