Honey Lemon Ginger Chicken with Teriyaki Broccoli
I always lean toward Asian as a meal of choice. The problem is most Asian dishes are loaded with preservatives and additives, but not this one. This was a great CLEAN recipe for homemade Asian! The flavor combination of real honey and lemon tasted restaurant quality and my children loved it as well.
to reduce the calorie content I served my chicken over quinoa instead of rice. I garnished the plate with a lemon and some green onion.
2 heads of broccoli florets
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp sesame oil
chicken stock on hand for sautéing
red pepper flakes
1/2 C teriyaki sauce
Wash and cut the broccoli florets, shallot and mince the garlic. Pre-heat a wok or sauté pan to med/high heat and add the sesame oil. Add the broccoli, shallot, and garlic flipping frequently to prevent burning. Sauté for 5-8 minutes adding chicken stock if needed. Then add all the seasoning as well as teriyaki, sauté another 3 minutes then remove from heat.
