  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs cubed, or chicken breasts
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper or carrots sliced into strips
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce low sodium recommended
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp cornstarch mixed with 2 tsp water
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Place a large skillet on high heat. Once hot, add in the oil followed by the cubed chicken.
  • Stir slowly using a wooden spoon for 3-5 minutes until starting to brown (the chicken does not need to be cooked through yet)
  • Reduce heat to medium-high and add the garlic, bell pepper and broccoli.
  • Stir for 3-4 minutes until vegetables are just starting to soften.
  • Stir in the honey, vinegar, soy sauce and water, then finally the cornstarch-water mixture.
  • Stir for one more minute until the sauce has thickened and is sticking to the chicken. Serve and enjoy!


  • The key to these tender, juicy and flavorful chicken is not to overcook them. Cut the chicken into 1-inch cubes and they'll cook quickly and evenly.
  • Use chicken thighs if possible as they have more flavor and are moister.
