"I've been making this recipe for over 10 years; my family requests it all the time. Great flavor and relatively easy/quick. I serve this with Wild Rice and Zucchini (cooked in olive oil with some garlic salt). Enjoy!"

  1. Heat skillet sprayed with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Cook chicken breasts in the skillet until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes on each side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  2. Cut chicken into strips.
  3. Whisk apple juice, lemon juice, cornstarch, and chicken bouillon in a skillet until smooth.
  4. Heat skillet over medium heat, stirring until sauce is thick and bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes; continue cooking for 3 more minutes.
  5. Place chicken strips into the apple juice sauce and simmer for 6 to 8 minutes before serving.

I really liked this but my SO said the sauce was too sweet. I served mine with mashed potatoes (and that may have been the problem). He said it would probably be better with rice or something el...

This is how I'm going to make Lemon Chicken from now on! The sauce is so good! I did marinate the chicken with orange juice beforehand though. This was also very simple to make.
