Today it is 50 out right now! The sun is shining, actually heard a few birds this morning that were not ducks or geese! Still no robin, but my senses are on alert now. It is still chilly though. There is that Spring chill in the air yet. I am sitting in my office in my jacket writing this. The wind has let up to about 10 mph, but I am still feeling the chill today. It is always easier to take with the sun shining! WOO HOO!
Keeping it simple again today. We had Honey Chicken Stir-Fry last night. So easy, and so tasty. It never disappoints! I will give you this easy, simple recipe and you can modify to your liking. I have made this many different ways...always one of our favorites! What I love about it the most is it takes about 30 minutes. This is my "go to" quick dinner recipe!
Honey Chicken Stir-Fry
Pick your chicken choice. 2 ways I go, and both are frozen. Frozen GF chicken nuggets, or all natural chicken strips (tenderloins) not breaded. I like mine (either choice) baked. So start your oven and place chicken on baking sheet.
Brown Rice - I am using quick cook brown rice. I use chicken broth and do this in microwave while chicken is baking. When rice is done, pull it out of microwave and keep covered.
Mixed Vegetables - I use a bag of frozen. Last night had Edamame! Love that! Microwave veggies after rice, while chicken is cooking. Chicken should only take about 20 minutes maximum.
SAUCE: I keep it simple. 1/2 to 3/4 cups honey, 1/4 to 1/3 cups soy sauce. Again this is to taste. We Love Honey...so I use about 1/2 the soy sauce that I use of honey. More Honey! (I also use GF Torimatsu Soy Sauce - Low Sodium)
When chicken is done I throw it in a Large serving bowl, throw in rice and cooked vegetables, cover with sauce and toss together! YUMMY! From start to serve about 30 minutes.
NOTES: Use your kind of chicken. Use any vegetable combo or just broccoli. Want garlic? Add about 3 Tbsp Minced Garlic. I have been known to use a little apple juice or a small can of diced pineapple with juice to cook rice. Use white rice if you want. Want more soy? Use the same amount of soy as honey. Also, most recipes use a couple Tbsp of flour for thickening. I don't. I use GF flour and sometimes it is just too sticky. You can always use more liquid, but I find using more honey in proportion to soy keeps it sticky enough. Seriously peeps! Any of my recipes are for you to do with as you wish! Every time can be different. I love this because it is soooo easy and quick! No shopping, just use whatever you have on hand. Of course you can do this all fresh...cut up and fry your chicken, fresh vegetables, etc. But this is one of my "go to" quickies! ENJOY!
