I'm a new mom, and my schedule is very dependent upon our young son, 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. —Caroline Sperry, Allentown, Michigan

"This was absolutely the best Stir Fry Recipe I've made thus far!!! I doubled the sauce and used 2-10.5oz bags of broccoli, cauliflower, snap peas, carrots, I made rice but it was better without it. My pickiest child even loved it. I will definitely keep this recipe for future."

"Yes, definitely double or triple the sauce. Tastes good with 1.5 teaspoons ground ginger, and you don't need the

cornstarch as the honey is thick enough. I used fresh thin baby carrots, home grown purple and green beans and small broccoli florets. Sprinkled with garlic powder. Served over jasmine rice. Hubby didn't complain - Win, Win!"

""You CAN teach an old cook new tricks" ...I have been making my own version of chicken Stir-Fry for many years that my family has always loved....BUT...last night I used this Honey chicken Stir-Fry recipe with fresh (not frozen) veggies. My husband said that the chicken was the BEST he has EVER had!!!

I added a hand full of sliced almonds with the chicken. The way the honey (I only had 2 Tablespoons) and soy sauce caramelized the chicken and almonds was delicious !!!
The veggies I usually use are scallions, napa cabbage, bean sprouts, sugar snap peas and broccoli or any combination.
This can be served over white rice, brown rice, barley, quinoa OR with no carbs like I enjoy!!!
I usually top each serving with some fresh scallions (the green part of a green onion) and a few sliced almonds.
This is a very healthy and impressive meal for company or your family!!!!"

"Super easy recipe. Using instant rice, dinner can be on the table in 15 minutes. A little too mild. It does need more soy sauce. Next time, think I'll try adding some ginger, and maybe some pineapple. Definitely a keeper."

"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."

"The honey absorbed the soy sauce flavor and came off tasting bland to me. Won't make again"
