Lemon Chicken Stir-Fry


This Lemon Chicken Stir Fry is a healthy spin on a popular Chinese take-out meal. It's such a simple and easy recipe that is perfect for a weekday family meal or a lazy Friday night dinner . It's much lower in sugar than the traditional recipe (traditionally made with a lot of sugar) and uses honey instead of refined sugar.

  • 1 Tbsp tapioca flour (or use cornflour)
