Hey! Happy middle of the week. I’ve got your mid week dinner saviour right here. 3 Ingredient honey garlic chicken. Because sometimes we need really really quick and simple dishes to nourish us, not just our hunger, but our need for ease and simple solutions. So, here it is.
It literally is 3 ingredients, you guys. And you probably have all 3 of them in your store cupboard right now. Not surprisingly they are honey, garlic and soy sauce. That’s it.
Oh. And chicken. Obvs. But I kinda feel like that’s a given. So think of this saucy little chicken number as a base for all manner of dinner building. I intentionally left this chicken to fly solo, so that you could pair with it whatever you want. For example that sauce would love some ginger, or sesame oil or even some lemongrass. And it would love to be served along side brown rice, or some noodles. Maybe just some stir fried veggies, or steamed bok choi. A squeeze of lime into that saucy mix would also be A-okay too. But, it’s absolutely delicious as is.
The point is that this is a jumping off point for you to have some creative liberty. Or not, if it’s Thursday night and all you want is dinner in 40 minutes then honey garlic chicken is what you need. Nothing fancy, just tasty, and simple every day food. Fast & Fresh food.
Every recipe that passes your eyeballs on this blog has been created with one question in mind. Will people make this? The recipes have got to be user friendly and delicious, other wise it’s not helpful. And I truly want this place to become a very helpful go to resource of recipes and info for people. So, here’s probably the simplest recipe to day. But one of the most delicious.
