This meal has become a favorite in our house. It's so easy and so good. Even on those nights when the last thing I want to do is cook...I jump up at the mention of Honey Chicken.
What you'll need:
2 chicken breasts
1 onion, sliced or chopped
1 can chicken broth
Once the chicken is cooked through, add the onions and stir to separate the sections. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the onions start looking translucent.
Just a side note, the type of onion you use will definitely effect the flavor of the dish. If you like onion, but aren't crazy about a potent onion flavor, make sure to pick up a sweet onion or a Vidalia. Yellow onions will make it really strong.
|You can see here I have a purple (or red) onion. I was using what I had on hand and it came out stronger than preferred.|
Next add in the honey,
and red pepper flakes.
Stir well to combine all the flavors.
The last steps are to add in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. After about 5 minutes, mix your cornstarch and water to make a slurry and pour into the pan. This will thicken it up. serve over white or brown rice with a nice veggie side dish. Mmm...mmmm!
This is Hope, 2 months ago, begging for Honey Chicken. She loves it! Can you see she's signing "more' to me? Needless to say, I didn't make it too spicy this time.
Gobble it up girl!
Don't you just love reminiscing through old photos? I love my babies.
I hope you enjoy this if you try it. It really is super easy and even more delicious.
Happy Friday everyone!
