Skinny Speedy Honey Ginger Chicken

As registered dietitians, one of the requests that we get the most is for healthy, delicious meals that can be made in a flash.  We hear ya, and we relate!  We all could use a few extra hours in our day.  So recently, when Tammy’s daughters requested one of those squeeze pouches of peanut butter and honey, it brought back memories of our love for honey.

We loved our Mom’s peanut butter, honey and banana sandwiches– and one of our favorite things to do was to help her make her homemade granola so we could stir in the honey and eat the honey-covered granola right out of the bowl before it was cooked.  Our poor mom would always have to chase us down to clean our grubby, sticky, honey-covered little hands 🙂 before we covered the furniture in honey (our favorite honey-covered rocking chair finally had to be retired– apparently we were the only ones who wanted to sit in a sticky chair– go figure!).

This quick, easy, healthy and delish dish was inspired by our love of honey!

Skinny Speedy Honey Ginger Chicken

Serves 4

 

Ingredients

2-1/2 tablespoons honey

Ginger powder

Garlic powder

3/4 pound very thinly sliced chicken breast

Sesame seeds (optional)– sometimes we cover the chicken with the seeds, but sometimes we’re in the mood for the chicken without the seeds– and it tastes just as delicious!

 

Directions

  1. Add honey to a large skillet over medium heat.  As honey thins, add garlic and ginger.  Then add chicken.
  2. Cook chicken until thoroughly cooked and chicken looks seared and starts to turn a nice golden brown as the honey absorbs into the chicken.  The more thinly sliced the chicken, the better in terms of cooking quickly.
  3. Add more ginger and garlic powder to liking.  Once chicken is completely cooked through and no longer pink, remove from pan.  Add to a plate filled with your favorite veggies or cover with sesame seeds and then serve.  Enjoy!
