Lemon Chicken

I can't believe I haven't put this one on my blog yet! This is one of our all-time favorites. This is the dinner I usually make when I take dinner to someone (especially if they have children). It is so basic - that even picky eaters like it. It seriously takes less than 20 minutes to make! So easy and good. Brown the chicken in just a little olive oil.

Cook the broth, sugar and corn starch until it turns thick and clear (see photo), then add the fresh lemon juice and soy sauce.

The finished product. Add lemon twists to make it look fancy!

Lemon Chicken

1/2 c. sugar
4 TBSP corn starch
1 can chicken broth
3 TBSP soy sauce
2/3 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice(none of that bottled stuff!)
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces

In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, and broth. Cook until opaque. Add soy sauce and lemon juice. Keep sauce warm. Sauté chicken breast meat in skillet with olive oil until lightly browned. Place hot chicken on a bed of cooked rice and pour the warm sauce over all and serve. Top with lemon twists if desired.

This has been a favorite of ours ever since you taught the Laurel class to make it years ago!
