What a great stir-fry!! And unlike any I've ever had--it reminds me of the food at our favorite Greek restaurant! The lemon pepper, lemon rind, and thyme add a wonderful fresh-zesty flavor to the chicken, vegetables, and pasta. Plus it has a very pretty, festive presentation. I scaled the recipe down to 2 servings; and used whole wheat thin spaghetti and roma tomatoes (cut into pieces)--and all of that worked well. My DH and I love Greek (and Greek inspired) food, so this recipe is a great find and will be used often! Thanks for sharing it, ratherbeswimmin'!!
