One of the things I love most about having owned a produce co-op is being able to try out new things, this is a recipe I would never have thought to make 3 years ago. I was always too busy to eat healthy, grabbed whatever box food I could find and threw it on the table as fast as I could. It might have saved me time but it cost me a lot, it cost my health and even though it was cheap to buy, the doctor bills weren’t cheap at all. Needless to say, I turned things around.
Now, I own The Produce Gathering and I think about every single thing I eat all the time. I know where my food comes from and I know what my family is eating.
This is a very easy recipe to make and can be made quickly if you’re in a hurry plus, like I said earlier, it will keep for a few days too. I used gluten free soy sauce which kept my sauce from getting very thick, if you use regular soy sauce, you’ll get a thicker version, just a heads up.
2 pounds chicken breasts (cut into pieces)
1 tsp garlic
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup honey
1 tbs sesame seeds
1 sliced onion
1-2 bell peppers sliced
2 cups broccoli
1 green onion
Cooked white rice
First, cook the cut chicken over medium heat in a pan. I coated my chicken with olive oil, salt and pepper first but you don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, that’s just how I cook my chicken.
In a separate bowl, mix together the soy sauce, honey, crushed garlic and sesame seeds.
Pour over the chicken and cook until thickened. Then, remove the chicken from the pan leaving the sauce. Throw in the sliced onion, bell peppers and broccoli.
Cover the pan and cook the veggies until soft, this took about 4 minutes or so.
Place the rice on a plate, cover with chicken and pour on your veggies with sauce. Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
I’m telling you, this one is delicious!
