Fresh Citrus Chicken

Fresh Citrus Chicken
This is another quick and easy dinner recipe. It is not too spicy, just enough to enhance all the ingredients' flavors.

The rice actually took longer than the dish itself, and I cook my rice in a rice-cooker which is very quick !

Next time you need to have dinner on the table in a flash - try this one, you won't be disappointed.


{4 servings}

1/2 cup Lemon Juice
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
1/4 cup Thick Soy Sauce

4 Chicken Fillets, cut into strips and placed in a bowl
2 TB Oil, for frying
Salt, to taste
1 Bunch Spring Onions, chopped
1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
2 t Garlic & Ginger Paste
3 Large Oranges, peeled and cut into segments

1.) Combine the Lemon Juice, Caster Sugar and Soy Sauce - pour over the Chicken strips - stir to cover all the pieces.
2.) Heat the Oil - remove the Chicken from the bowl  {retain the sauce} and stir-fry until done - season with Salt.
3.) Add the Spring Onions, Green Bell Pepper and the Garlic & Ginger Paste - stir-fry about 3 minutes until the vegetables are a little softer but still crunchy.
4.) Add the retained sauce and the Orange segments - heat through {about 2 minutes}

Serve over rice with a side salad.

Till later,

With A Blast

Linking up with some of these cool parties - also see my complete Party List:


  1. Pinning this, I'm always on the lookout for lemon recipes! My rice cooker started making glut guy ice and I switched to using my pressure cooker, it's really quick. So if you ever have to replace it I recommend getting one.

  2. This looks really good and I just saw ginger paste in our store for the first time last week! Thanks for sharing it!

  3. I love that you used oranges in this recipe. I bet the flavor is amazing! Thanks for sharing your link at The Weekend re-Treat Link Party on The Best Blog Recipes!
