Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 cups broccoli
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons oil divided
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • sesame seeds for garnish if desired

Instructions
 

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet.
  • Add in the broccoli and sauté until tender and caramelized, 4-5 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the same pan. I cook my chicken in two batches to ensure it gets crispy and caramelized on the outside.
  • Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  • Meanwhile in a small bowl combine soy sauce, water, honey and sesame oil.
  • Add the sauce to the pan along with the broccoli.
  • In a small bowl mix the cornstarch with a tablespoon of cold water.
  • Slowly whisk in the cornstarch mixture into the sauce. Simmer until the sauce has thickened, 1-2 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately with sesame seeds for garnish, if desired.
