I love to cook, I began learning in high school and it has always been something I enjoy doing. When I began cooking I would follow a recipe exactly, measuring precisely the whole way through. Then, as I had made more and more dishes I learned to eyeball and to even make up some of my own masterpieces!
I’ve had some total flops in my experimenting and I have had some real winners. Recently I concocted a real winner and I wanted to document it and share it with all of you!
| What You Need |
1 pound chicken breast – seasoned, grilled and cubed (salt and pepper is fine, or any other seasoning you like)
1 large sweet potato cubed
1 head of broccoli chopped
Honey Garlic Sauce:
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 tablespoons hot water
- 1/2 tablespoon corn starch
| What You Do |
Steam broccoli and sweet potatoes until tender – set aside | To steam, I place veggies in a microwave safe dish, add 1/4 cup water, cover with saran wrap and microwave for 3.5 minutes.
To make the honey garlic sauce |
In a medium sauce pan combine all of the ingredients except the hot water and corn starch and bring to a gentle boil.
Reduce the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Stir often to prevent sticking to the pot.
After 5 minutes, in a separate bowl, combine the hot water and corn starch to make a slurry (learned that word from Pioneer Woman!). Once well combined, add to the other ingredients. Stir well.
Give it a couple minutes to thicken. Repeat if it’s still not thick enough for you.
Now, add the chicken to the veggies and pour the sauce over the mixture. I do not like things drenched in sauce so I spooned a small amount over the chicken and veggies and refrigerated the rest.
This recipe made enough for 4 big servings.
