- 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
- 2 lbs. (1 kg) boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 6 pieces), cut into thirds
- 1 tsp (5 mL) salt
- ½ tsp (2 mL) pepper
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
- 1 head broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1 garlic clove, pressed
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) Honey Sriracha Seasoning
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) gluten-free, low-sodium soy sauce
- ¼ cup (60 mL) honey
- ½ lime, juiced
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) cornstarch
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) water
- Optional: Green onions, chow mein noodles, lime wedge, cooked rice
Heat the oil in the 5-qt. (4.7-L) Nonstick Saute Pan over medium-high heat for 3 minutes.
Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Brown the chicken, undisturbed, for 5 minutes. Flip and cook for another 3 minutes.
- Add the onion, bell pepper, and broccoli and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute.
- Combine the seasoning, soy sauce, honey, and lime juice. Pour the sauce over the chicken and vegetables. Reduce the heat to medium and bring to a simmer, tossing often.
- Combine the cornstarch and water in a small bowl to create a slurry. Slowly stir the slurry into the pan. Bring to a simmer and continue cooking until sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes.
- Serve over cooked rice with sliced green onions, chow mein noodles, and a lime wedge, if you’d like.
