Simple Asian Lemon Chicken

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Belinda in Austin, TX

This easy Asian recipe came from a Kraft cooking magazine. I subbed the fresh snow peas the original recipe called for, with an Asian frozen veggie mix, containing snap peas. This is very light, and great, served over rice. If you want it to be spicy, you could add some red pepper flakes, to taste.

This recipe is simple and very tasty. I was surprised at the subtle flavor the jello added. I would definitely recommend this dish.
