Skillet Honey Garlic Chicken

Sorry I have been a little MIA lately. I have felt really busy lately, not sure why… but the blog always suffers when I feel busy.

Anyway I am back and I have a good one for ya! This Honey Garlic Chicken is awesome. So much flavor, so easy and super-fast! All of the things I look for in a dinner recipe.

I even mixed up the sauce (minus the cornstarch) the night before and just put it in the fridge so when I made dinner it came together even quicker! Always good when your bus is stuck in traffic forever and you don’t get home until after 6:30pm!

What you need,

2 or 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into ½ inch pieces
Salt & Pepper
1 tsp. vegetable oil
¼ cup chicken broth
¼ cup soy sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
3 tbsp. honey (if you like it a bit sweeter you can add a little more)
4 tsp. cornstarch

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium high heat. Add the oil.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

Cook for the chicken until brown and crisp and cooked through.
Meanwhile stir the chicken broth, soy sauce, garlic, rice wine vinegar and honey together. Whisk in the cornstarch.

Pour the sauce over the chicken and let it bubble up for a couple of minutes until it thickens.

Serve over some cooked rice with some broccoli alongside.

This sauce, oh boy was it good! So sweet and savory, perfect on the chicken and the rice, it was even good on the broccoli.

I love how fast the whole meal came together. 15 minutes start to finish, my kind of weeknight meal!
