  • 2-3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 4 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 4 medium-sized carrots peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups snow or sugar snap peas
  • ½ cup yellow onion diced
  • ½ red bell pepper sliced or diced
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenderized and cut into bite sized pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • For the sauce:
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Hot cooked rice for serving


  1. Preheat a large nonstick skillet or wok to medium-high. Once hot, add 2 tablespoons of oil and veggies and stir fry until they are crisp-tender. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  2. In the same skillet, add 1 tablespoon oil and chicken pieces. Season with salt and pepper and cook until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. While chicken is cooking, whisk together the sauce. Add garlic to the chicken and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute longer.
  3. Combine the honey, soy sauce, water, and cornstarch in a small mixing bowl. Pour sauce over chicken and simmer for 2-3 minutes until sauce starts to thicken. Add cooked veggies back in and heat through. Serve immediately over hot, cooked rice.
