Quick, easy and satisfying. You can get the more expensive "Tenders" or just cut up 12 ozs of chicken breast.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix 1 teaspoons cornstarch and 1 tablespoons soy sauce in a small bowl. Add sliced chicken tenders. Place in refrigerator and marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Stir the lemon juice, 1/4 cup soy sauce, chicken broth, ginger, garlic, Splenda and 1 teaspoons cornstarch together in a medium sized mixing bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a medium size frying pan. Add chicken and cook over med. high heat for 3-4 minutes or until just done. Add sauce and sliced peppers. Cook 1-2 minutes more or until sauce thickens and peppers are slightly tender.
  4. Serve with rice or Asian noodles.

For me personally I found it too salty and not enough of the lemon taste so would consider cutting the soy sauce back to 1/8th cup (I scaled up for 3 serves) and adding some lemon zest to the mix otherwise a fantastic simple and quick dish to make and the DM (she is a salt fiend) and the DS thoroughly enjoyed just as is so much so that they both had second helpings from the little that was left over as I used a little more chicken than what was called for and I sliced up chicken breasts as I could not buy tenders. Thank you Annacia, made for Everyday a Holiday.
