Honey-Glazed Chicken Stir-Fry
During the growing season you can use whatever fresh vegetables you want. Otherwise just use some frozen stir-fry vegetable mix.
You will need a walk or a large skillet.
12 oz. skinless, boneless chicken meat, cut into 1" cubes
2 Tablespoons honey
2 Tablespoons vinegar
2 Tablespoons orange juice
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon cornstarch
2 Tablespoons cooking oil
2 cups frozen stir-fry vegetable mix OR 2 cups of whatever fresh vegetables you want
Hot rice for serving
In a small bowl, combine the honey, vinegar, orange juice, soy sauce, and cornstarch.
Add the oil to your wok or skillet.
Heat to medium high and add your vegetables.
Stir-fry for 3-5 minutes until crisp tender. Large pieces of broccoli may take longer.
Remove vegetables from skillet.
Add the chicken and stir-fry for 4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
Move the chicken to the outer edges of the pan and add the honey/soy mixture.
Cook and stir til thickened and bubbly.
Add the vegetable back to the pan and mix in.
Don't keep on the heat for more than a minute. The vegetables will release more juices and thin out the sauce.
Serve over hot rice.
Makes 4 servings.
For a cooking oil, I recommend olive oil. It makes the vegetables taste fresher.
