  • ¼ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated or finely minced
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • ½ Tbsp. molasses
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch + 2 tablespoons water
  • Chicken and Veggies
  • 3 Tbsp. sesame oil, divided
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped into 1” pieces
  • 1 cup snow peas, sliced into 1” pieces

  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper

Directions:

  1. Combine soy sauce, water, garlic, red pepper flakes, ginger, honey and molasses in a small pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir together cornstarch and water until dissolved. Add cornstarch mixture to the sauce and boil for 1 minute or until sauce has thickened. Remove pot from heat and set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tsp. sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli, red peppers and snow peas. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until vegetables have started to brown and soften. Add 2 Tbsp. of water and cook until water has evaporated. When vegetables are crisp & tender, remove from the pan and set aside; cover to keep warm.
  4. Wipe out the pan. Heat remaining 2 tsp. of oil in the pan over high heat.
