Honey Sesame Chicken

Tonight’s dinner was SCRUMPTIOUS!  We eat a lot of chicken in our house, so I’ve been trying some new recipes to not get too bored with it.  It was also EASY…my favorite word when it comes to cooking!!  Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook!  But I get a bit frazzled when the recipe is complicated :-)  I served this chicken over brown rice and green beans, and it was a hit with the whole family!!   I modified the original recipe to lighten it up a bit.  Enjoy!


1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1 in. pieces)

1/2 c. honey

1/2 c. low sodium soy sauce

1/2 tsp. sesame oil

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. minced garlic

2 tbsp. minced onion (dry)

1/4 c. BBQ sauce (low sugar/sodium)

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper


Mix honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, minced garlic, minced onion, BBQ sauce, and crushed red pepper in a bowl. Add the chicken to the bowl and evenly coat.  Put the chicken and sauce in a skillet.  Cook the chicken on medium heat until no longer pink in the center (about 10-15 min.).  Serve over brown rice and your choice of veggie.
