Dinner last night, was this easy Honey-Chilli Chicken.
It’s the kind of dish that gives you a healthy dose of protein, plus add veggies of your choice, like brocolli, bellpepper, onion, mushrooms, or baby corn…and your 1 dish meal is ready in under 15 minutes!
■ Cut boneless chicken into bite sized cubes.
■ Marinate with a bit of salt, pepper, soy sauce, & ginger-garlic paste. Set aside for 15-20 mins. (You could also marinate the chicken & leave it in the fridge before you go to work. All you need to do is stir fry it later in the evening, & your meal will be ready in minutes.
Anyway…so back to the chicken.
■ While your boneless chicken cubes are soaking up the soy sauce, & ginger garlic flavours, dice veggies of your choice into bite sized cubes.
■ Finely mince some ginger & garlic. Slit some green chillies lengthwise (or mince them if you like)
■ Toss the marinated chicken In some dry cornstarch so that all pieces get covered with a thin and even dusting of cornstarch.
■ In a wok, heat couple of tsps of Sesame oil, add minced ginger-garlic, green chillies, veggies, soy sauce, salt to taste and Honey. Toss on high heat for a minute.
■ Add cornstarch dusted chicken to the wok and keep tossing till the sauce coats all the veggies and chicken evenly. This should take only 4-5 minutes. Do not overcook chicken and vegetables.
■ Garnish with fresh spring onion and sesame seeds. Serve hot.
■ If you want to serve this chicken with rice, add water and simmer for a couple of minutes till you get the desired consistency of gravy.
