Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp avocado or groundnut oil divided
  • 4 chicken breasts diced into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/4 tsp kosher salt divided
  • 1 head broccoli cut into small florets
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa

Honey Garlic Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

To garnish:

  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1-2 tsp black and white sesame seeds or as desire

Instructions

  • Prepare 2 bowls, one with beaten egg, and the second with cornstarch mixed with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Dip the chicken into the beaten egg. Place all the pieces into the cornstarch and toss to lightly and evenly coat.
  • Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken pieces in a single layer without overlapping.
  • Cook until golden brown on all sides, about 8-10 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl whisk all the sauce ingredients. Pour sauce over the chicken and toss to coat then set aside.
  • Quickly wipe the pan clean with a paper towel, and add in the remaining oil.
  • Preheat skillet again, stir fry the broccoli until they start to brown. About 2-3 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Add about 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa to each meal prep bowl. Divide the broccoli and chicken among your bowls and arrange over the quinoa.
  • Garnish with green onions, sesame seeds, and lime wedges.
  • Refrigerated for up to 4 days. Serve cold or reheated, as desired.

Notes

  • Chicken: we prefer you to use lean chicken breast. But you may use boneless chicken thighs. you may switch the protein to either shrimp if you like.
  • Broccoli: use fresh if possible. Frozen will also work. Don't like broccoli? use any of your favorite veggies like green beans or Brussel sprouts.
  • Oil: any oil works
  • Quinoa: if you don't like quinoa, you may use brown rice.
  • Store these honey garlic chicken in containers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • This meal is slightly spicy but you may either add less sriracha or skip it completely.
