Easy Lemon Chicken 

Feeding my family can at times be a challenge both my husband and myself have food intolerances and two of my kids are quite fussy in their food choices.

I am gluten and lactose intolerant as well as suffering from mild acid reflux and irritable bowel syndrome and my husband suffers from severe acid reflux and high blood pressure.

I have had to eliminate flavourings such as garlic and onions as they are major trigger factors. Also salt and pepper. Not to mention countless fruits and vegetables that are triggers for my IBS and our acid reflux issues. 

It doesn’t make cooking easy but I am up for the challenge.

So here is an easy recipe for lemon chicken which yuh can serve with rice, noodles or salad.


500g Chicken Breast 

1/2 cup lemon juice 

3/4 cup cold water

1 tbl gluten free corn flour

1 tbl chives

1 tbl parsley 

1 tbl sage

3 tsp caster sugar

2 medium carrots 

1 cup string beans

2 tbl canola oil


  1. Wash and dry chicken cut into strips and place in glass bowl.
  2. Add lemon juice and dried herbs and castor sugar. Mix and set aside for 1/2 hour to soak in juice.
  3. Peel and chop carrots into thin strips.
  4. Place 1 tablespoon of oil in a heavy based frying pan add carrots and string beans. Stir fry on medium heat until just soft. Set aside
