Honey Ginger Chicken

I wish I had some better pics for you but,  alas, I was hungry and was very goal oriented.  That is it was time to chow.  This is an amazing dish.  The idea came from this blog, Mommy Hates Cooking,  but of course, I made it my own and my chicken was frozen in the morning.  So the clow cooker was not an option.  Oh well, no worries, enter the stove.  I have to say, this is probably how I would make it the next time,  Because, fo sure, there will be a next time.  It goes really quick when you are ready to put the flame on, provided you have everything chopped and ready.


10- 12 chicken tenders or breasts, cut into smaller pieces
1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons oil
3 cups vegetable of choice, I used carrots and celery because I have nothing else at the moment.

Sauce Ingredients:
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup soy sauce 
2 tablespoon ketchup
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1 8 oz can of pineapple chunks, just the juice
2 tablespoon cornstarch

Serving Garnishes and Accomaniments:
reserved pineapple chunks
cooked rice to serve it with

In a saucepan combine all your sauce ingredients.  Place heat on medium until it starts to bubble. Keep stirring, reduce your heat.  Once it is thickened, place on a very low heat setting.  

In a large frying pan over medium, heat oil.  Dip chicken into flour, both sides and fry about three minutes on one side and three minutes on the other.  It really depends on how thick your cuts of chicken are.  You can find out if they are done by pressing on them with a fork.  If there is give then it is not cooked all the way through.  If it feels firm, its done. Remove chicken, set aside, covered.  I just threw mine into the microwave, it is a nice holding place.

In the same fry pan saute your vegetables.  I sometimes put a little water in the pan and cover so it steams.  This way you don't have to use more oil.

Once they are done, throw your chicken back in and add sauce and you are done! Serve pineapple along side or garnish the dish with the pineapple.

It took longer to write this recipe than it did to make the dish.  Its quick and easy- so make it!
