Honey Chicken Stir-Fry Recipe

"I'm a new mom, and my schedule if very dependent upon our young son," relates Caroline Sperry from Shelby, Michigan. "So I like meals that can be ready in as little time as possible. This all-in-one stir-fry with a hint of sweetness from honey is a big time-saver."

  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen broccoli stir-fry vegetable blend
  • Hot cooked rice

  • 2. In same pan, stir-fry vegetable blend in remaining oil 4-5 minutes or just until tender. Return chicken mixture to pan. Stir cornstarch mixture and add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 1 minute or until thickened. Serve with rice. Yield: 4 servings.

"This is a family favorite! My picky 7 year old loves it, my 15 month old does too, & my husband wants me to make it every week. The honey gives it a nice sweet flavor. I double the sauce & make angel hair pasta and mixed it all together, DELICIOUS!!! Super quick to make too."

"OMG this is sooooo good!! this is my second time making it and it never fails to impress, Ive doubled the sauce per other reviewers. Instead of using water I used the extra sauce with the cornstarch, when I make this recipe again and again, I will defintely use fresh veggies."

"This was a great stir-fry recipe -- cooking the chicken in with the garlic, soy sauce and honey before removing made it much more flavorful than my other stir-fry recipes. I also used fresh rather than frozen veggies(sliced carrots, celery, and broccoli), which I steamed lightly in a separate pan while cooking the chicken, then stir-fried in the chicken pan as directed. Definitely a keeper."

"Nice, quick, standard weeknight fare. Fresh vegetables are always much better in stir-fry than the frozen bagged mixes. Try any combination of broccoli, red pepper, snap or snow peas, julienned carrots, celery or shelled edamame."

"I love this recipe! I had cooked chicken to use up so I sauteed the vegetables in olive oil, added the chicken and then poured the sauce over everything. It worked great! Personally I would use equal parts of honey and soy sauce because I think it is plenty sweet. I also cut up fresh vegetables to use instead of frozen. Delicious!"

"I make this recipe probably twice a month! It's EXCELLENT. I've made a few changes to it though -- As others have stated, I double the garlic, honey & soy sauce. I also like to add 2 TBS of sesame seeds & 1 TSP of sesame seed oil to the chicken when I'm sauteing it. I prefer to use fresh veggies (bell peppers, onions, broccoli, snap peas & mushrooms). It takes like 7-8 minutes to stir fry them over frozen. I've used frozen before too and they're just as good! Seriously -- you won't be disappointed with this!!"
