15 Minute Meal- Honey Garlic Chicken

15 Minute Honey Garlic Chicken

Preparing dinner can be the last thing you want to do at the end of a long day. That’s why this recipe is one of my favorites to make (especially mid-week when I’m exhausted). It takes only 15 minutes and I’ve got a delicious, filling meal for the night- and usually some leftover for tomorrow too!

Here’s the recipe (4 servings):

Ingredients:

  • 2 Large Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts- Cubed Into 1-Inch Pieces
  • 2 Cups of Uncooked Brown or White Rice ( I use boil-in-bag rice)
  • 4 Cups of Broccoli (I use frozen)
  • 3 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 3 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • Olive Oil

Instructions:

  1. Start by boiling water for the rice. Once boiling, add the rice and cook for recommended time.
  2. Pan-sear chicken until no longer pink and edges become golden brown.
  3. While chicken is cooking make the sauce: mix the soy sauce, honey, garlic and red pepper flakes together.
  4. Add the sauce to the chicken and let simmer for about 4 minutes.
  5. While the sauce is simmering, microwave the broccoli.
  6. Plate the rice, broccoli, and chicken- voila! Dinner is done!
