    Loved this recipe, but tweaked it a little! I used 1 and 1/2 Tbsp of vegetable oil, and 1/2 Tbsp wok oil infused with garlic, chili, ginger( Mongolian Fire Oil). I also used a little more chicken stock than required to lessen the sweetness. At the end after Adding the chicken back into the sauce, I added about 1 and 1/2 of fresh stir fry veggies into the skillet and let it simmer until veggies were tender but not overdone. I served it over organic brown rice ...I found these fabulous packets at Trader Joe’s you just pop in the microwave for 3 minutes! My husband loved it! I will definitely be making it again......????????

    I found this to be very bland. No repeat performances here.

    So sweet, yummy and easy, made with lemon curd! I also added half a lemons juice, just to give little more zing and cut the sweetness. Absolutely the best lemon chicken ever!

    We loved this!! Very simple to make, and had excellent flavor! I wanted to make just to use up some lemon curd I had in the fridge - did not expect to enjoy it as much as we did - a definite keeper. No changes to recipe - used chives which were great addition for both color and abit of flavor. Thanks for posting!!

    My Mom made this for me on my last trip to Cali in March. I just made it for the family tonite. Great! Quick, easy and yummy.
