Honey Garlic Chicken

Honey Garlic Chicken made at home is SO much better and tastier than from any restaurant and makes a perfect, quick dinner, especially on a busy week night.

Honey Garlic Chicken

If you have never tried Honey Garlic Chicken , now is definitely the time. We used to have a few good Asian take-away restaurants close to home, but they have all disappeared to the bigger malls, which I so hate going to.

I had seen various recipes for something similar, with a small change here and there, but I never looked closely at any of them.

Boy, was I surprised when I realized exactly what I was making ! One of my old favorites which I always, but always ordered at one of our Chinese Restaurants.

Honey Garlic Chicken

The meal looks so simple, but it is packed with flavor, and other than Basmati Rice (or your favorite), this makes a delicious dinner.

We have had it a couple of times already, and it always comes out perfectly.

And because it is such a simple, uncomplicated recipe, I love it even more…. and perhaps more important – no strange, unheard of ingredients, which I often find in Asian cuisine.

This looks yummy. I think I'll try it with a side of steamed broccoli. I'll bet peas mixed in with the rice would be good, too. It looks like it's 'lonely' without any real green around it! I've also looked at many of your other recipe suggestions . . . They all look wonderful. I'm going to try the Thai Salad too. thanks!

Hi when you say T is that teaspoon or tablespoon. Thanks
