Honey Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

I love stir frys because they are quick and easy. Perfect for a busy weeknight. This is a super easy meal that can be made in under 30 minutes! Everything is made in one pan making for an easy clean up.

They are also very versatile and can be made in many different ways depending on what you have on hand. I made this chicken stir fry with lots of broccoli. You can always substitute the broccoli with carrots, bell peppers or cauliflower!

For me the trick to an awesome stir fry is a hot pan. I like to cook the chicken in batches so it stays nice and crispy. I also cook the broccoli over high heat just until it is caramelized on the outside and it still has a nice crunch to it.

After the chicken and broccoli have cooked I add them back to the pan along with the sauce ingredients. I like to add soy sauce, honey and water. That’s it!

Ingredients

How to make Honey Garlic Chicken Stir Fry

  • Saute Broccoli: Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet. Add in the broccoli and sauté until tender and caramelized, 4-5 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Cook Chicken: Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the same pan. I cook my chicken in two batches to ensure it gets crispy and caramelized on the outside. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Make the sauce: Meanwhile in a small bowl combine soy sauce, water, honey and sesame oil. Add the sauce to the pan along with the broccoli.
  • Make cornstarch slurry: In a small bowl mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water. Slowly whisk in the cornstarch mixture into the sauce. Simmer until the sauce has thickened, 1-2 minutes.
  • Serve: Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately with sesame seeds for garnish, if desired.
