Diabetic Asian Lemon Chicken

Recipe by Annacia

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

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.
