    1. 1
      Mix chicken with the next five ingredients, and allow to marinate for twenty to forty minutes.
    2. 2
      Heat wok over high heat until a thin thread of smoke rises. Add 3 tablespoons peanut or canola oil (reserve last tablespoon until later) and allow to heat another thirty seconds. Add scallions, ginger, chilies and half of the lemon zest and stir fry for thirty to forty seconds, or until all is fragrant.
    3. 3
      Add marinated chicken, and spread into a single layer on the bottom of the wok, and leave undisturbed for about one minute, or until the chicken browns on that side. Stir fry until the chicken is 2/3 doneā€“in other words, 2/3 of the chicken is white or brown, and the rest is pink. Add half the lemon slices and stir fry for another thirty seconds, then remove chicken and lemon from wok to a clean bowl.
    4. 4
      Add reserved tablespoon of oil to wok, and allow it to heat thirty seconds. Add broccoli and stir fry for thirty seconds, then add wine and lemon juice.

      VERY, VERY NICE TASTING! Lemon, ginger, chicken, broccoli ~ That really says it all for me, since the making of this recipe melds those flavors so nicely! The prep took me a bit longer than indicated, but I needed things in place & ready so that all would go smoothly, which it did! I look forward to making this dish again & again ~ Many thanks for sharing it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]

      *Reviewed during ZWT4* I loved the ingredients and that this recipe was easily made gluten-free just by using suitable soy sauce. Luckily I prepared everything first as this recipe cooks up in a matter of minutes. I love chicken and broccoli. The lemon and ginger combination was nice also but the lemon was quite strong for my personal taste. Next time I think that I'll use the lemon juice but leave the sliced lemon and rind out.

      Made this last night for dinner - the cooking part moves along quickly so be sure to prep everything ahead of time. I halved the recipe and it made enough for three of us. Everything went along pretty well, when I got to step 4 it says add wine and lemon juice, but I couldn't find where the lemon juice was mentioned again.... so, I just added a couple of dashes of RealLemon. This dish is very lemon-y, which I enjoyed - you could even eat the lemons that were added the first time around. The steps were a little overwhelming, I kept losing my place, might be nice if they were broken down into shorter steps. Made for Chinese New Year review game.
