When I was first married, we didn’t have a working oven or grill, so I had to use the stovetop for everything. After a few months of the same thing, I needed some new ideas and developed this simple chicken stir-fry. I make half of it when we’re home alone and can easily double it for company. –April Walcher, Hutchinson, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1-1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen stir-fry vegetable blend
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 4 to 6 cups hot cooked rice

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the honey, soy sauce, lemon juice and ginger; set aside.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet or wok, stir-fry chicken in oil for 3-4 minutes or until lightly browned. Add vegetables and water chestnuts; stir-fry 3-4 minutes longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender.
  3. Stir honey mixture and stir into chicken mixture. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until heated through and chicken is no longer pink. Serve with rice.
