Guiltless Lemon Chicken

I love Chinese food but I don’t get it all that often because it’s horrible for me. My favorite dish is Lemon Chicken! An order of Lemon Chicken is usually between 400 and 500 calories—NOT including the rice! I decided to make my own Lemon Chicken and it turned out awesome! It is so easy to make and only takes about 10 minutes!
