Honey Lemon Chicken Bowls

Honey Lemon Chicken Bowl Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or butter, divided

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus*, cut into bite-sized pieces (ends trimmed)

  • 2 cups chopped (small) broccoli florets

  • Kosher salt and freshly-cracked black pepper

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 6 cups cooked rice or quinoa

  • optional garnishes: toasted sesame seeds, lemon slices/wedges

Honey Lemon Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or water

  • 1/4 cup freshly-squeezed lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

  • pinch of ground ginger

  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced


To make the Honey Lemon Chicken Bowls:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil (or butter) in a large sauté pan or wok over high heat. Add the asparagus and broccoli, and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Transfer the asparagus and broccoli to a clean plate, and return the pan to the heat.

  2. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil (or butter) to the pan, along with the chicken. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Sauté for 5-6 minutes, tossing occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink on the inside. Stir in the honey lemon sauce until the chicken is evenly coated, and cook for 1 minute or until the sauce comes to a simmer and thickens. Remove pan from heat.

  3. Portion the rice, vegetables and chicken evenly between 6 food storage containers. Top with your desired garnishes. Then serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days.

To Make Honey Lemon Sauce:

  1. Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl or mason jar until combined. Makes 6. Serving size 1
