Honey Ginger Chicken

Today, I have got the easiest recipe for you: honey ginger chicken. And it can be ready in 30 minutes! 

Sure, it may seem a litttttle intense at first glance but you can mix and match with what ingredients you have at hand and it’s great at using up any old vegetables you have lying in the fridge. 

This can be made gluten-free friendly by subbing the soy sauce for tamari and normal flour for gluten free flour. You can also make this using fish and even tofu, great for meat free monday! 

There is some frying involved which gives the chicken a little crisp but there’s nothing wrong with baking the chicken or air-frying if you’re watching the waistline. 

Let me know how you get on in the comments below! 

Notes: I understand not everyone has chinese vinegar at home but I cheated and subbed it for ½ tsp of balsamic and ½ tsp of worcestershire sauce. Also there is no need to use fresh ginger and garlic if you don’t have it on hand, the bottled paste works fine!
