Chicken in Lemon Sauce

Chicken in Lemon Sauce

Posted 2019-02-13 by finyfollow

I always like lemon chicken when I eat Asian however it has a lot of sugar in it which I no longer want to eat. I, therefore, made this version of a lemon chicken.

I served it with a broccoli and almond salad.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
For the chicken
Up to 100 g medium pasta of choice
1 tbsp oil
1½ shallot, sliced finely
1 clove garlic, minced
300 g chicken thighs, cut into small chunks
½ cup chicken broth
½ tsp lemon zest
1½ tbsp lemon juice
Dill, chopped
¼ cup peas (can be frozen but I used fresh)
2 tbsp cream cheese
1 tsp corn flour mixed with some water

For the broccoli salad
About 200 g broccoli
¼ cup almonds, toasted
½ small red capsicum, thinly sliced
2 tbsp Vinaigrette dressing (I used a shop one)

Method
For the broccoli salad
  • Cut or break the broccoli into small florets and pour boiling salted water over it. Let it stand for about 4 minutes. Drain and leave to cool.

  • Put it in a bowl with the almonds and red capsicum.


  • Pour the dressing over it and toss thoroughly.

  • The salad can be made ahead of time, just leave the dressing till the last minute.

  • For the chicken
  • Cook the pasta as per packet instructions. Drain well.

  • In a wok or similar heat the oil until it is hot over medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic and cook about 2 minutes, stirring.

  • Add the chicken pieces, salt to taste, ginger and pepper.

  • Cook until the chicken is cooked through - about 5 to 12 minutes.

  • Stir in the peas and the cream cheese and cook for another few minutes.


  • Add the soup, and lemon items.

  • Stir in the corn flour mixture and cook, stirring till the sauce is slightly thickened - about a minute only.

  • Mix the noodles in with the sauce.


  • Divide among bowls and serve with the salad.
