Honey Chicken Stir-Fry

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 chicken stir fry recipe with a hint of sweetness from honey is a big time-saver. —Caroline Sperry, Allentown, Michigan

    This receipe was delicious! I made a few adjustments as recommended in the reviews. I purchased Perdue chicken chunks so I didn't have to dice the chicken. I used 2lbs instead of 1lb because we are a family of 5. I also seasoned the chicken with seasoned salt, onion powder, and I used 1 tablespoon of minced garlic so the chicken wouldn't taste bland like one reviewer mentioned. I also doubled the sauce like alot of the reviews below recommended! Receipe came out perfect and this is definitely a keeper and will be on rotation. This is a delicious quick weekday receipe.

    Very good. I agree with other reviews that it could use a little more sauce. I followed the recipe as written. We liked the honey soy sauce mixture. Thanks for sharing Caroline.

    This was fantastic. Maybe a bit more sauce but everyone enjoyed including my very picky mother

    Loved this meal. It was quick, easy, and flavorful. Doubled the sauce like most people recommended. Bird’s Eye, steamed fresh Asian medley, lightly flavored, was a great substitution for the broccoli medley since my store didn’t have it. This recipe will definitely be added to my recipe box.

    I also tripled the sauce but it got a little to thick on me so i added chicked stock to add flavor ( and to thin it out a bit) I added the ginger like sugested and it was amazing!

    Very good! I doubled the sauce like most reviewers recommend. I also added 2 tsp minced fresh ginger with the garlic for stir frying the chicken.

    I liked the honey in the sauce, but like others have said, I doubled or even tripled the sauce as it needed it. I added some ginger for some additional seasoning. Instead of using frozen vegie blend, I opted to use fresh broccoli, mushrooms and spring peas. I also put in some Oriental sesame seed dressing while cooking the chicken to flavor it. YUM!
