Here's a delicious and colorful chicken entrcée that's quick to fix and has an oriental twist. I sometimes add some diced jalapeño pepper to this to "kick it up" a bit! It's good served with a chilled white wine, side salad and breadsticks. Originally printed on a package of pine nuts.

I sliced up the chicken and veggies (food processor) and sauted the main ingredients early in the day. I reheated and added the lemon soy mixture to hot freshly cooked noodles. I sampled the chicken while cooking and it was tasty, but the lemon soy sauce really makes the flavor! My daughter took one bite and said how good it was and the rest of us loved it, too. I'm going to make sure I keep pine nuts on hand. This is a recipe I will be making a lot. Roxygirl
