Chicken and Vegetable Saute

A lot of "made in 30 minutes" dinners fail to deliver on the nutritional front, but not his chicken and vegetable saute. Lean chicken, fiber-packed beans and vitamin-packed broccoli do the trick deliciously. When shredding lemon peel, remove the super-thin yellow part only as the pithy white substance beneath it is bitter.
