Chicken Stir-fry With Honey & Soy Sauce

Another weeknight; another adventure into the fridge in hope of finding something delicious to make.

Lucky for us there was a pack of julienne stir-fry veggies and three skinless chicken fillets ready for a hot pan.

After experimenting with a new kind of sauce when I made Teriyaki chicken the other day, I decided to make a similar Asian-inspired sauce to go with the chicken stir-fry.

I think I’ll call it the Two Tablespoon Sauce from now on — or maybe the Ten Tablespoon Sauce. You’ll see why when you read the ingredients section. (Let me know which one you prefer!)

Who’s hungry? Vincent and I, so this recipe serves two.

Ingredients

  • 400 g chicken fillets, cut into strips
  • 400 g julienne vegetables
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp green onion seasoning
  • salt & pepper

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil

Get saucy

Get all the sauce ingredients into a mixing bowl and whisk it until well combined. Leave it aside for later.

Stir & fry

Heat up a wok with some olive oil in it. Add your veggies, sprinkle them with green onion seasoning and start stirring.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

Grate fresh ginger into the veggie mix. Keep stirring.

After 5 minutes, add the chicken and stir for about 2 minutes.

Before the chicken is completely cooked, pour all of the sauce into the wok.

While you stir and wait for the chicken to cook through, grab a gulp of wine. I had Nice Fields’ Chardonnay.

Once the sauce has thickened a little and the chicken is completely cooked, it’s dinner time!

Dish, garnish & dig in!

Sprinkle sesame seeds on top
