On busy weeknights it sometimes seems like you don’t have enough time to cook a healthy meal at home but, with recipes like this honey garlic chicken it can easily be done! This is a one-pan chicken dish that takes less than 20 minutes to make so you can cook some rice or pasta at the same time! Honey and garlic is such a simple combo but it’s a magical one! You don’t really need to add a lot, some broth to build out the sauce, soy sauce for saltiness, maybe pinch of reed pepper flakes for heat and I like to finish with a touch of butter! Yum! To complete the meal you just need to add a veggie, like zucchini, bell pepper, snap peas, etc, that you can saute in the same pan!
