Chinese Take Out Lemon Chicken

This was a delicious recipe that we will make again and again. It was quick and easy to put together. We didn't have snow peas, but I think you could add any vegetable--broccoli or carrots.

Chinese Take-out Lemon Chicken
Serves 4 (1 cup servings)

1 tbsp oil (we used much less)
2 cups snow peas(we didn't have these)
4 chicken breasts cut into cubes
1 red pepper cut into strips

Lemon Sauce:
1 pkg lemon jello(sugar free)
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp zesty italian salad dressing
2 cloves garlic

Cook chicken in oil in a wok on medium heat until no longer pink. Add snow peas and peppers, cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add lemon mixture and cook over medium heat until sauce is thickened. Serve with hot rice or noodles.
