Honey Garlic Chicken

Honey Garlic Chicken

My friend Bethany is a mom of three little ones three, working full time as school teacher and is always looking for a quick and healthy dinner to feed her family. This Honey Garlic Chicken has been on repeat in her house and many others for quite some time now. After making it for the first time tonight, I can see why.

It’s crispy but tender, sweet but tangy, and it was eaten by everyone at my table. My husband and I loved it, and our kids, who have been used to breaded chicken (my doing), even ate this. A new taste to get accustomed  to, but with a little extra honey for dipping they bought into it.

And we all always love giving our rice an upgrade with this classic Coconut Rice.

Coconut Rice:

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 c water
  • 1 spoonful of sugar
  • a few punches of salt

Cook jasmine rice according to package in those ingredients.
