Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Chicken Stirfry

0.5 cup (8 fl oz) Soup, Chicken Broth
3 tbsp Soy Sauce
2 1tsp Vegetable Oil, Canola
1 cup, chopped Carrots
2 cup, chopped Broccoli
0.5 cup, sliced Onions
3 tsp Garlic
8 oz Chicken

Recipe Directions for Lemon Chicken Stirfry

  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.
