Let's Make It
Pour dressing over chicken in shallow dish; turn to evenly coat both sides of all thighs. Refrigerate 2 hours to marinate.
Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Place flour in pie plate. Dip chicken, 1 thigh at a time, into flour, turning to evenly coat both sides of each thigh with flour. Shake gently to remove excess flour.
Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 to 3 min. on each side or until evenly browned on both sides. Remove from skillet. Drain oil from skillet; discard oil. Add chicken broth and garlic to skillet; bring to boil, stirring constantly to scrape browned bits from bottom of skillet. Return chicken to skillet. Cover; simmer on medium-low heat 30 min. or until chicken is done (165°F).
Stir in mushrooms; simmer, uncovered, 10 min., stirring occasionally. Add onions, snow peas, lemon zest and juice; cook 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with parsley.
Serve with lime wedges.
For a thinner sauce, add up to 1 cup additional chicken broth until sauce is of desired consistency..
How to Blanch the Onions and Snow Peas
Add vegetables to a large pan of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 2 to 3 min. or until crisp-tender. Drain, then immediately plunge the vegetables into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. When completely cool, drain vegetables then pat dry. Trim root ends from onions; slip peels off by squeezing gently from the root ends until the onions pop out from the peels. Discard peels. For an easier option, substitute drained thawed frozen snow peas for the fresh snow peas, and drained thawed frozen pearl onions for the fresh pearl onions. No onion peeling needed!
Substitute fresh green beans or peas for the snow peas.
