Lemon Stir Fry Chicken with Bittman

Yesterday in between drop offs and pick ups as well as shopping Targets 75% off garden sale, I whipped together dinner.  My kids are huge fans of sweet and sour chicken and I am still searching for that perfect no fry recipe so in the meantime I thought I would throw a little Mark Bittman in their direction.  First question, Is this sweet and sour chicken???  Yummmmm.  Unfortunately, there were no left overs and I was asked to repeat for lunch today.  Repeat a recipe???  I have hundreds of books and recipes left to explore.  Perhaps in a year or two.
