1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
10 ounces mushrooms, halved or quartered
1 cup diagonally sliced carrots , (1/4 inch thick)
2 cups snow peas , (6 ounces), stems and strings removed
1 bunch green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces, white and green parts divided
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
Grate 1 teaspoon lemon zest and set aside. Juice the lemon and whisk 3 tablespoons of the juice with broth, soy sauce and cornstarch in a small bowl.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until just cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate with tongs.
Add mushrooms and carrots to the pan and cook until the carrots are just tender, about 5 minutes. Add snow peas, green onion whites, garlic and the reserved lemon zest. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds.
Whisk the broth mixture and add to the pan; cook, stirring, until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add green parts of onions and the chicken and any accumulated juices; cook, stirring, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.
