Our Sublemonal Message is potent and tart – we let the natural flavor of meyer lemons shine – and with the added ginger it makes a delightful glaze for meats or base for sauces. This chicken stir-fry uses those flavors for a quick and memorable entrée.

With half a cup of Sublemonal Message you’ll have a delicious dinner for four in no time. The Meyer lemon rind in our marmalade gives this stir-fry a burst of citrus flavor and saves you the time of zesting yourself, and the rice wine vinegar and soy sauce up the savory factor resulting in a balanced, healthy dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2  Pound  chicken tenders, cut into chunks
  • 1/4  Cup  all-purpose unbleached flour
  • kosher salt
  • 2  Tablespoons  vegetable oil
  • cloves minced garlic
  • 1  Tablespoon  rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2  Cup  chicken broth or stock
  • 1  Tablespoon  plus, ½ teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2  Cup  Sublemonal Message Jam, or similar product
  • 2  Tablespoons  hot water
  • scallions, thinly sliced

Directions

Coat the chunked chicken lightly in flour, seasoned with a little salt.

Heat a large skillet or a wok-shaped nonstick pan over high heat.

Stir fry chicken until golden, 3 or 4 minutes.

Remove chicken from the pan and return pan to heat. Reduce heat to medium.

Add garlic and cook briefly just until garlic begins to brown.

Add the rice wine vinegar to the pan and let it barely evaporate. Add stock or broth to the pan and scrape up any drippings with a whisk.

Thin Sublemonal Message by stirring in 2 tablespoons hot water. Add to broth and whisk to combine. Add soy sauce and mix well.

Add chicken back to the pan and simmer for 1 to 2 minutes to thicken the sauce and finish cooking chicken pieces through.

Remove the pan from heat, add the scallion, and toss chicken pieces well to combine scallions evenly throughout the sauce.
