Honey-Glazed Chicken Stir-Fry

This is one of my favorite quick, easy, healthy recipes to make. I lost the recipe at one point but googled the ingredients and found it!

Honey-Glazed Chicken Stir-Fry
From The Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook 1996

Start to finish : 25 minutes
Makes 4 servings.


· 12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves or skinless, boneless chicken thighs

· 2 tablespoons honey

· 2 tablespoons vinegar

· 2 tablespoons orange juice

· 1 tablespoon soy sauce

· 1 teaspoon cornstarch

· 2 tablespoons cooking oil

· 2 cups vegetables, fresh or frozen (I buy the packaged stir-fry veggies in the produce department)

· hot cooked rice or couscous (I buy pre-cooked microwaveable brown rice)


1. Rinse chicken; pat dry. Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces; set aside. For sauce, in a small bowl stir together honey, vinegar, orange juice, soy sauce, and cornstarch; set aside.

2. Pour cooking oil into a wok or a large skillet. (Add more oil as necessary during cooking.) Preheat over medium-high heat. Stir-fry vegetables for 3 minutes or till vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove vegetables from wok. Add chicken to hot wok. Stir-fry for 3 to 4 minutes or till chicken is no longer pink. Push chicken from the center of the wok. Stir sauce; add to center of the wok. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly.

3. Return cooked vegetables to wok. Stir all ingredients together to coat. Cook and stir about 1 minute more or till heated through. Serve immediately over rice or couscous.

  1. I feel like 2 tablespoons of honey is NOT enough for the title of HONEY glazed! Haha, I bet it's plenty good. But do you add a little more honey, normally? Can't wait to try this..

  2. Haha, ya you are right, I actually have made it so often that I don't really measure anymore so I'm sure I put more than 2 tbsps of honey!
