Honey Lemon Chicken

This dish is a healthier - and easier! - take on the honey lemon chicken dish you often see on a Chinese restaurant menu. It's fresh, easy to make, and delicious. How can you go wrong with honey, lemon, and ginger? The sauce is also fairly versatile; you could cube the chicken and make it more like a stir fry, with added veggies, or even use shrimp instead. I know many of us are always on the look out for new ways to fix boneless, skinless chicken breasts and this is a great recipe to try out!

In order to cook it even faster, I pounded my chicken down and then cut them in half.

Honey Lemon Chicken
1 pound chicken breasts (pounded thin, if desired)
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon ginger (grated)
1 large lemon, or 2 small lemons (juice and zest)
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup chicken stock
Salt and pepper to taste

Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a pan.

Add the chicken and saute until golden brown and cooked through and set aside.

Add the ginger and saute until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the lemon juice and zest, honey, stock, salt and pepper and reduce to thicken. Taste and make sure you don't need to adjust anything (I added even more lemon at this point but we love lemon!).

Pour the honey lemon sauce over the chicken.
