This recipe uses the speedy cooking technique of a stir-fry, but instead of the typical Asian seasonings, it is brightened with lemon zest and parsley.
1 pound  boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat
1/4 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/3 cup  all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil, divided
12 ounces  sugar snap peas or snow peas (4 cups), trimmed of stem ends and strings
1 14-ounce can  reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 cloves  garlic, minced
1/4 cup  finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon  freshly grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon  lemon juice
Cut chicken into 1-by-2-inch strips; season with salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow pan and dredge the chicken strips in it, shaking off excess. (Discard any leftover flour).

Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add peas and stir-fry until bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

Add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil to the pan and heat on medium-high until shimmering. Add chicken and cook, stirring, until lightly browned and opaque in the center, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer the chicken to the bowl with the peas.

Add broth and garlic to the pan; cook until reduced to 1 cup, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and return the chicken and peas to the pan. Cook until heated through. Add parsley, lemon zest and lemon juice. Serve immediately.

What "Asian ingredients?"
Snow peas are about the only thing "Asian" in this recipe! Try using sesame oil, grated ginger and some pepper flakes! This recipe is far too bland to be Asian and it needs tweaking!
