I cooked onions and the broccoli in EVOO and a little sesame oil. Then added the chicken on one side of the same pan. When it was cooked through I added all the honey and ginger. I also added some amino acids. Everyone loved it! Read More

my mistake was not making the recipe exactly as written the first time. I read a few reviews and decided to cook my veggies a little more. That was a bad move. overcooked veggies. Also I had only two breasts so I made a smaller amount but when tasting it - found it so bland that I ended up adding soy sauce red pepper flakes and more ginger and honey. I am going to try again and do the recipe right the first time. Read More

No joke this recipe is amazing!! I don't own a wok so I used a frying pan and it turned out marvelous. I cooked chicken until it was kind of crispy then added the honey and ginger for a few then removed it onto a dish. I then cooked the rest of the veggies and added the rest of the honey when the veggies were about done. I only had a green bell and it turned out fine. Thanks for the great recipe this will be in my family's rotation!! Read More

The family loved this meal - had a good sweet but zesty sauce. I cut down the honey just a bit and also added sesame seeds. Definitely a keeper! Read More

I'm putting this as a 4 because I really liked it, but my husband found it too sweet - and he loves honey. I liked the sweetness and the spice of the ginger. I also added two cloves of garlic and one teaspoon of crushed red chilli peppers, so that might've added some zing as well. My sauce was a little watery, so I added two teaspoons of corn starch to thicken the sauce a bit. Very tasty with minor changes. Read More

My family liked this recipe but I think we would have liked it more with a bit less ginger and honey (maybe because I didn't have as many veggies though) Also, next time, I think I'll try browning the the chicken first to make it a bit crispy on the outside before adding honey. I had run out of broccoli so added sliced carrots and extra red peppers. Read More

Loved it! I used already grilled chicken breasts which really cut down on the cooking time so it was quick and easy. The leftovers were even good on the second day. Read More

I had some fresh pineapple leftover from a fruit tray and some veggies from veggie tray. What a delicious way to make that veggie tray go farther! I thought it might be too sweet but it was delicious! I had to used ground ginger (1 tsp) because I didn't have fresh. I also added 2 T of soy sauce. I also mixed 2 T of corn starch with some cold water and added it with the simmer because I like a thicker sauce. Veggies added: green and red peppers carrots broccoli celery and some frozen peas.
