Healthy Lemon Chicken: A twist on a classic sweet and tangy Chinese dish, this healthy version of lemon chicken is quick and easy! | aheadofthyme.com

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • ¼ cup soy sauce (try gluten-free)
  • 2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 2 and ½ tbsp. honey
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in ¼ cup cold water
  • 1 tsp ginger, grated
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp. ground black pepper
  • sesame seeds
  • green onions, sliced

Directions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and honey. Mix until the chicken is fully coated. Place the chicken and marinade in ziplock bag and squeeze out all the air. Place the bag in the refrigerator and marinate for at least 1 hour. If you have time, let it marinate longer.
  • Once the chicken is ready, start preparing your lemon sauce. In a medium bowl, combine and whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, chicken stock, honey, cornstarch mixture and ginger. Set aside for now.
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Remove the chicken and drain and discard the used marinade. Add the chicken to the frying pan. Season it with salt and pepper and stir to evenly coat the chicken. Cook for about 5-10 minutes until the chicken is not longer pink inside.
  • Remove the cooked chicken and transfer it to a separate plate and set aside.
  • Heat a clean frying pan over medium heat and pour in the lemon sauce. Once the sauce starts to boil and thicken, add the chicken and toss evenly to coat.
  • Optional: Sprinkle some sesame seeds and sliced green onions and cook for one minute.
  • Serve over a bowl of rice and garnish with additional sesame seeds.
