Yield: 4 cups, about 1-1/2 cups each

Ingredients

    1 pound chicken breasts, boneless, skinless trimmed of fat
    1/4 tsp salt
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    3 cups frozen sugar snap peas trimmed of stem ends and strings
    1 (14 ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
    1 Tbsp freshly grated lemon zest
    1 Tbsp lemon juice

Directions

Cut chicken into 1-by-2-inch strips; season with salt and pepper.

Place flour in a shallow pan and dredge the chicken strips in it, shaking off excess. (Discard any leftover flour.)

Heat 1 tsp oil in a large nonstick skillet over
medium high heat. Add peas and stir-fry until bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

Add the remaining 2 tsp oil to the pan and heat on high until very hot.

Add chicken and cook, stirring, until
lightly browned and opaque in the center, about 4 minutes.

Transfer the chicken to a bowl with the peas. Add broth and garlic to the pan; cook until reduced to 1 cup, 5 to 7 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium and return the chicken and peas to the pan. Cook until heated through.

Add parsley, lemon zest and lemon juice. Serve immediately.
