5 Ingredient Honey Chicken

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup (85g) honey

  • 3 tablespoons (51g) soy sauce (use Tamari soy sauce if gluten-free)

  • 2 garlic cloves (6g) (diced)

  • 1 tablespoon (14g) olive or avocado oil

  • 1 lb (453g) chicken breasts (cut into bite-sized pieces)

Optional garnishes: green onion, sesame seeds, red pepper flakes

Instructions:

  1. Whisk the honey, soy sauce, and garlic together in a small bowl or measuring cup.

  2. Heat oil in skillet over high heat. Add diced chicken to the pan and sear (without turning) for about 5 minutes until the underside is golden brown. Toss, and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes.

  3. Add the sauce to the pan along and stir to combine. Continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked through and the sauce is slightly thickened.

  4. Serve over rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice. Garnish with green onions, sesame seeds, and/or red pepper flakes if desired.

Notes:

  1. For a lower sodium meal use low sodium soy sauce. The macros will remain the same.
