Midweek Mealtime - Lemon Chicken

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Have I mentioned I like ethnic food?  Yeah, it's a bit of an addiction, really.  And I always get so dang excited when I find a way to make my favorite dishes healthier.  This recipe is a real winner!  Now, disclaimer:  it's not 100% clean.  The ingredients do include sugar-free jell-o mix.  BUT, I will definitely keep it in my repertoire because it is so much healthier than the original.  All right, enough chit-chat.  Let's get to the recipe!

Take-Out Fake-Out Lemon Chicken


  • 1 package sugar-free lemon gelatin mix (like Jell-O)
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup fat free chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp. zesty Italian salad dressing
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 6 oz snow peas
  • 1 red pepper, cut into strips
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice


  1.  Mix gelatin, cornstarch, and broth in a small bowl until powder is dissolved.
  2. Add chicken, garlic, and Italian dressing to skillet; saute until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Add snow peas and pepper; cook until veggies are crisp-tender, approximately 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in gelatin mixture; heat just until thickened.
  5. Serve over hot brown rice.
