Easy Honey Garlic Chicken Recipe
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1½ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into small pieces (about ½ inch)
salt and pepper (to taste)
3 Tbsp. honey
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced or 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes (optional, to taste)
Serve this honey garlic chicken with your choice of these optional items:
- brown or white rice
- green onions, sliced
- sesame seeds
- lime wedges to squeeze over chicken
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly season the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet and brown on one side, about 3-4 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the sauce. Whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic and red pepper flakes, if using, in a small bowl until well combined. Add the sauce to the pan and toss to coat the chicken pieces. Cook until chicken is cooked through, 4-5 more minutes.
Serve with steamed rice and top with green onions, sesame seeds and a squeeze of lime juice, if desired.

I made this today. I was delicious. I added a few drops of sesame oil at the end.
Do your cookbooks have a lot of poultry, fish, or seafood recipes? My husband has liver failure and cancer and cannot have any beef, pork, or red meat ( ie, wild game). I would like to order them when I can but wanted to know if they had recipes I could use. Thanks.
We do have a lot of chicken recipes but one of the main things about our recipes is they are very easy to adapt to most special diet needs because the are so simple and easy.
