THE BEST HONEY LEMON GINGER CHICKEN RECIPE

I love a fast, easy and healthy meal. Especially when I am watching what I eat. This dish was full of flavor and you don’t have to compromise on taste!

I have been eating clean for 28 days now! I have had no cheat meals, no treats, nothing. I am on a mission to lose weight. I am so close I can almost taste it. Crossfit plus having a nutritionist is finally getting it done. Yesterday I was able to wear one of my favorite dresses. Even my boyfriend was impressed and said “wow, you look skinny!” That felt so good coming from him. He has been including in his prayers each night that I will have help losing weight. Gotta love them!

I love adding delicious meals into the healthy eating rotation. I couldn’t believe how incredible this was. The glaze over the chicken was fantastic! So sticky and the honey lemon ginger all complemented each other perfectly. So full of flavor and SO delicious! I know you will love it too!

 

Ingredients

  • 3 boneless chicken breasts, (about 1½ pounds)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • ½ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • zest from one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

 

Instructions

In a medium saucepan, add olive oil, minced garlic, and ginger. Sauté over medium heat for 2-3 minutes and add honey, lemon juice, lemon zest, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, and cornstarch. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Let simmer and thicken while cooking chicken.

Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and add to a medium skillet. Cook about 4-5 minutes until no longer pink in center and the outside is starting to brown. Add the sauce to the chicken and toss to coat. Hopefully you’ll love this recipe as much as I did!
