For the Sauce

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest *from 2 large lemons
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 4 large garlic cloves *minced or crushed, about 1 tablespoon
  • 1/2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch or arrowroot

For the Stir Fry

  • 1 lg chicken breast *cut into strips
  • 1 lg zucchini
  • 6 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 lg brown onion *roughly chopped about 1 cup
  • 2 tsp sesame oil *for frying chicken & veggies
  • Precooked brown rice or quinoa


  • Mix all ingredients for sauce thoroughly. Set aside.
  • Roughly dice onion and cut zucchini into small wedges, keeping veggies separate from one another. Cut chicken into strips.
  • Heat wok on highest heat with 1 tsp sesame oil until just smoking. Add chicken and stir fry until cooked through, about 5 mins-set aside. Heat wok again on highest heat until just smoking with an additional 1 tsp sesame oil. Add onion and stir fry until onions are sweating and slightly brown, about 2 mins. Add zucchini and continue stir frying for another 3 mins. Add mushrooms and stir fry until tender- about 4 mins. Remove from wok and set aside. Place wok back on high heat. Mix sauce ingredients again and add to hot wok. Sauce will thicken in about 1 min over direct heat. Add chicken and veggies back into wok and stir until sauce thoroughly coats stir fry. Take off heat and serve immediately.
