Ingredients

  • 4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 oz. each)
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 Tbsp. cornstarch, divided
  • 6 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup lemon peel, cut into 1/2" slices
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, marinate chicken in soy sauce for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, add water, vinegar, honey, 2 tablespoons cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon peel, and salt. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade and cut into strips. In a gallon-size plastic bag, add 1/3 cup cornstarch and chicken pieces and shake until chicken is well coated.
