Home Cooking: Honey-Glazed Chicken Stir Fry

Quick and easy recipe: Honey glazed chicken stir-fry.

Recipe submitted by Stacey Shipman, founder Healthy South Shore.

I made this simple and delicious Honey Glazed Chicken Stir Fry over the weekend, adapted from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook (1996).

Instead of frozen vegetables I used carrots, onions and bok choy that I had from our South Shore Organics delivery.

Quick tip: Cook chicken in advance and add at the end. Made this simple meal even easier. Cook rice while you stir-fry vegetables.



12 oz chicken breasts, sliced thin or into 1 inch pieces

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)

2 tablespoons orange juice

1 tablespoon soy sauce (I used low sodium)

1 teaspoon corn starch

2 tablespoons cooking oil

2 cups vegetables – I used bok choy, carrots and onions

1 cup hot cooked rice (see your rice package for cooking details)


  • Sauce: In small bowl stir together honey, vinegar, orange juice, soy sauce, cornstarch. Set aside.
  • Preheat oil over medium-high heat in large skillet or wok, adding more oil as necessary during cooking.
  • Add onions, bok choy and carrots. Stir-fry until carrots are crisp tender. (Other veggies will cook faster)
  • Remove vegetables and add chicken. Cook chicken 3 to 4 minutes or until no longer pink.
  • Push chicken to sides of skillet. Stir sauce and add to center of skillet. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly.
  • Return cooked vegetables to skillet. Stir all ingredients to coat with sauce. Cook until heated through 1 or 2 minutes.
  • Serve immediately over hot rice.

This meal is so simple, the combination of the soy sauce, honey and orange juice makes the perfect combination of sweet/tangy that is light and flavorful. And it’s low in fat!

We enjoyed it and I’ll make it again. How about you? Do you stir-fry?
