How to Make Lemon Chicken Stir-Fry (Weight Watchers)

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Spray a large, non-stick skillet with non-fat cooking spray, and set over medium-high heat.

    Grate 1 teaspoon lemon zest and set aside.
  2. Juice the lemon and whisk 3 tablespoons of the juice with broth, soy sauce, pepper and cornstarch in a small bowl.
  3. Add chicken to skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Add bell pepper and carrots to the pan and cook until the carrots are just tender, about 5 minutes.

    Add snow peas, scallions, garlic and the reserved lemon zest to skillet. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Whisk the broth mixture and add to the pan; cook, stirring, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Add chicken and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Cook, stirring, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
