Cooking Thursday--Easy Lemon Chicken

We have been watching our calorie intake here lately.  I'm happy to say I've lost 16 pounds in one month!!  So now I'm on a quest to cook healthy meals for my family.  This is one I made the other night and everyone loved it.  I have really come to love Splenda...I know many people will stay away from stuff like that but when your trying to loose weight you need all the help you can get.

Easy Lemon Chicken

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
12 ounces chicken breast tenders, cut in thirds
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
¼ cup fat-free chicken broth
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon Splenda Granulated
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
¼ cup red bell pepper, sliced into 2-inch strips
¼ cup green bell pepper, sliced into 2-inch strips

Mix 1 tsp. cornstarch and 1 Tbsp. soy sauce in a small mixing bowl. Add sliced chicken tenders. Place in refrigerator and marinate for 10 minutes.

Stir the lemon juice, ¼ cup soy sauce, chicken broth, ginger, garlic, splenda and 1 tsp. cornstarch together in a medium-sized mixing bowl.

Heat oil in a medium frying pan. Add chicken and cook over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes or until just done. Add sauce and sliced peppers. Cook 1-2 minutes more or until sauce thickens and peppers are slightly tender.
