I’d like to think that I am a fast learner when it comes to cooking and while I have tried and conquered some difficult recipes, the meals with the simplest ingredients are always my favorite!
Today I will be sharing a Honey Garlic Chicken Stir Fry recipe that is so easy and full of flavor.
You more than likely already have all the ingredients at home too!
- 1 tablespoon & 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil
- 1 cup of sliced carrots
- 2 cups of broccoli (You can use fresh or frozen vegetables or even a “Stir Fry Kit” you may see in the frozen section of grocery stores.)
- 1 lb. of boneless chicken breasts or tenderloins, cubed
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup of low sodium chicken broth
- 1/4 cup of soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons of honey
- 2 teaspoons of cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon of cold water
- 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
- salt & pepper to taste
Heat 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet and add the broccoli and carrots and cook until the vegetables are tender.
Once fully cooked, remove the vegetables from the skillet and place them on a plate or in a bowl and cover.
Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the skillet and season the cubed chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Cook until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
Remember to mince your garlic and then add that to the chicken while it browns for about 30 seconds.
Add your vegetables back to the skillet and cook for about 2-3 more minutes.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk the chicken broth, honey and soy sauce together and then in a smaller bowl, mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water. (The cornstarch will help with the texture.)
Pour the soy sauce mixture into the skillet and cook for about a minute.
Next, add the cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil, cook until the sauce has thickened.
Serve with white rice if desired and enjoy!
