Simple 21 Day Fix Lemon Chicken Recipe

⭐️Simple 21 Day Fix Lemon Chicken Recipe⭐️


Servings Per Recipe: 4

A quick and easy weeknight meal for you and your family!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 12 ounces chicken breast tenders, cut in thirds
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup coconut aminos
  • ¼ cup fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 packets Stevia
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, sliced into 2-inch strips
  • 1 cup green bell pepper, sliced into 2-inch strips

DIRECTIONS

  1. Mix 1 teaspoon cornstarch and 1 tablespoon coconut aminos in a small mixing bowl. Add sliced chicken tenders. Place in refrigerator and marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Stir the lemon juice, ¼ cup coconut aminos, chicken broth, ginger, garlic, Stevia, and 1 teaspoon cornstarch together in a medium-sized mixing bowl.

  3. Heat olive oil in a medium frying pan. Add chicken and cook over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes or until just done. Add sauce and sliced peppers. Cook 1-2 minutes more or until sauce thickens and peppers are slightly tender.  Garnish with fresh lemon slices and parsley, if desired. 

    (For 21 Day Fix “container counts”, each serving counts as:  1 red, 1 green, and 1 tsp.  The sweetener, coconut aminos, and cornstarch amounts are small -- and to me -- negligible.)
