  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.

Made the sauce as written, but changed out the veggies to what I had on hand (broccoli, mushrooms, red pepper). Very good, but I think I'd like it better with a bit more kick. Will try adding s...

I made this for my husband and myself and it was a nice change from the typical stir fry's we've had. Love the lemon taste, gives it a lighter feel.

I didn't have mushrooms and added broccoli, onion, and mini cucumbers. You can almost add any vegetable because it is the lemon sauce that captures this recipe.

Delicious! The lemon adds just the right touch. I added a green pepper because we had one and we love them. The amount of cornstarch should be larger - the sauce was very thin.

Very good and easy I served it with rice noodles,fantastic!

Really good, although I added cashews nuts ad I didn't have enough chicken!

My husband didn't like the sauce but I liked it.

My first attempt, and it was bland. I'd like to make it more lemony. I also think I should have added more salt.
