Honey Soy Sauce Chicken

Hey everyone! I am super excited for today’s tried and true recipe. One of my very favorite foods to make is Chinese food. We love all the recipes, especially the Asian chicken versions. We tried a recipe for Honey Chicken today that we all loved because it was flavorful and a little more healthy.

You see, this chicken recipe is not breaded and is heated up in a small amount of oil. With honey, soy sauce, spices, brown sugar and more, it has the perfect sweet and salty touch that everyone loves with Chinese food. Now that we’ve established that this Honey Chicken is on the healthier side of things we have to mention that it tastes AWESOME too! Really! We’ve had it with white and brown rice, and it’s great both ways. It’s light, tasty and even the kiddos loved it!

How to make Honey Chicken

Having this chicken not breaded makes it even easier to make. Just prep your ingredients and make the honey chicken by following these easy steps:

  1. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and season with some garlic salt & paprika
  2. In a bowl, whisk together your honey, soy sauce, red pepper flakes brown sugar, paprika and garlic salt.
  3. Cook chicken in hot oil and stir until lightly brown, about 5 minutes. Pour in honey mixture and chopped broccoli and continue to cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink and sauce has thickened. Serve over white or brown rice (or noodles).

We added broccoli to this particular recipe because our family likes it, but like most recipes, it can filled with any of your favorite ingredients. Peppers, snow peas, and carrots would all make great additions too.

This recipe is perfectly paired with these other Lil’ Luna recipes:

  1. This was super delicious and so easy! I made it using pre-cooked and chopped frozen chicken and I just mixed the sauce and chicken all together and cooked at the same time – it turned out wonderful! I added a little bit of ground ginger as well. Very tasty!

  2. This Honey Chicken was amazing! Served it over sticky rice and have made it with broccoli and asparagus as the veggies. It’s on the menu for this weekend as well. Can’t get enough of it. So easy and delicious; it has a permanent spot in our weekly dinner rotation. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Question about the honey chicken recipe. It says to cook the chicken in hot oil and the add the honey mixture and brocolli. How much oil do you use and do you add the honey mixture to the hot oil with the chicken? I’m a little confused.

    1. You cook the chicken in the 1 1/2 Tablespoons of olive oil & yes, once you’ve cooked the chicken for a little bit, you add the honey mixture & broccoli & continue to cook. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

  4. This was so good and easy! My husband loved it and so did I. I definitely will be making this again!! Thank you Soo much!

  5. Made this tonight and we loved it! Thank you so much for the recipe!! Only thing id say is if children are eating, maybe dont use pepper flakes! Its wonderful but ProBably to spicy for kids!
