honey soy chicken


Prep time: 10 min         Cook time: 45 min          Makes: 2-3 servings


My Mum has been making this for as long as I can remember and it’s always been in my top 3 favourite dinners.  Tonight I made it but added a little extra special ingredients to make it a little bit more asian infused.

Also a fun little side note is the chive garnish was actually my first harvest EVER!  I started my very own herb garden last month and they are growing out of control.  Proud moments!

Anyway… let’s get back on track.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.  I’ve also tried making it in the slow cooker which yields similar results and which may also save a bit of time after work.  (But I still prefer the oven).

I love this served with rice or veggies, broccoli is a great match, or dry fried green beans!
