The Lemon Chicken with Herb Rice by Campbell's Supper Bakes boxed mix is delicious. Any idea how to make it from scratch? I'd like to make it less salty and healthier, if possible.

Here's an excellent Lemon Chicken recipe I've made for a couple of decades ... It sounds like a lot of work but it really isn't and the end results are yummy, very healthy and well worth the effort :-) I choose to cook it in a wok but a large skillet will do just fine ... You can freeze leftovers if you wish to :-) Actually, I think I'll enter this one in the recipe contest ;-)
4 whole chicken breasts, boned skinned and cut in to bite size pieces (of course, you can buy already skinned and boned breasts)
4 tbls peanut oil
2 tsp corn starch plus 1 tbls mixed with one tbls water
3 tsp grated lemon rind
2/3 cup chicken stock
1 lb fresh snow peas
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Rice of your choosing
Toss chicken bites with 2 tbls oil and 2 tsp cornstarch
Heat remaining 2 tbls peanut oil in wok or skillet
Stir fry chicken about 2 minutes
Sprinkle with lemon rind and then add chicken stock and snow peas
Stir fry 1 minute
Combine lemon juice with cornstarch and water paste, add to wok and stir fry until sauce has thickened
Serve over rice
Bon Appetite ;-)
OOH! That sounds yummy!
Possibly you have a recipe for chicken cooked on a bed of flavored rice, everything covered with a can of sauce and a crumb topping? This is basically a description of the Campbell's Chicken meal. Normally I detest boxed meals, but this one is a winner.
