    I did add more ginger to suit our taste preference and garnished with chopped scallions. I cooked the sauce for quite a while, but the carrots never made it past the crunch stage. In the future, I'll either pre-cook them a bit, or more likely, just julienne them. Very simple and quick to make. You definitely will know that you're eating "lemon" chicken.  -  27 Oct 2015
