Had a really busy weekend and start to the week so I’m making a quick skillet dinner tonight. I love one-pan meals and even better when they’re complete meals. No extra dishes, no extra fuss. This is one of those easy dinners I love to make any night of the week. All you do is chop, stir and cook until it’s all ready. It’s really just that easy!
Honey Soy Sauce Chicken Skillet
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
- 2-3 cups frozen veggies, any kind (I used carrots and peas)
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- salt and pepper to taste
- Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until slightly colored on the outside, about 5 minutes. Add in the veggies and garlic and cook for approximately 5 more minutes or until vegetables are tender. Remove the vegetables from the pan; place them on a plate and cover.
- To make the sauce – in a bowl whisk together the chicken broth, honey and soy sauce. In another bowl, mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water. Pour the soy sauce mixture over the chicken and vegetables; cook for 30 seconds.
Add the cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil; cook for 1 more minute or until sauce has just started to thicken. Serve immediately and enjoy!
