Ingredients

For the stir fry:

  • 1 and ¼ lbs boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 3 cups of mixed vegetables such as broccoli, asparagus, bell pepper, mushrooms
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

For the sauce:

  • ¼ Cup soy sauce
  • ½ Cup water
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Instructions

For the sauce:

  • Place the soy sauce, water, garlic, ginger, honey, and sesame oil in a small pot over medium-high heat. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn up the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  • Mix the cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water until dissolved. Add the cornstarch mixture to the sauce and boil for 1-2 minutes or until sauce has thickened. Set sauce aside.

For the stir fry:

  • Heat 1 teaspoon vegetable oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add the vegetables and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the vegetables have started to brown and soften. 
  • Add 2 tablespoons of water and cook, until water has evaporated. When your vegetables are crisp-tender remove them from the pan and set aside.
  • Wipe out the pan. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil in the pan over high heat.
  • Place half of the chicken in the pan and season generously with salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Set the first batch of chicken aside and repeat the process with the rest of the chicken.
  • Add all of the chicken and vegetables back to the pan. Pour the sauce over the top and cook for 2-3 minutes over medium-high heat until warmed through.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
