This Lemon Honey Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry is full of sweet lemon flavor and comes together in just 30 minutes! Skip the not so healthy takeout and swap it out for this tastier and better for you version instead!
Hi friends! Danae from Recipe Runner here today and I’m brought an easy and tasty weeknight dinner with me, Lemon Honey Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry. Yep, we’re making our own takeout and I probably don’t even have to tell you how much healthier it is than anything you can order at your favorite Asian restaurant.
Now don’t get me wrong I absolutely love eating all that fried, crispy, sticky Chinese food as much as the next person, you won’t see me turn down an egg roll or fried wonton. But let’s be real, when you finish eating that takeout don’t you feel bloated and just want to lie on the couch for the rest of the night? Don’t even get me started about how many times I wake up in the middle of the night needing water because of all the salt!
To avoid the bloated, coma inducing, water craving issues I’ve been making my own Chinese takeout. It’s easy to do, less expensive, a fraction of the calories and none of the unwanted side effects…oh and it’s super delicious too! I’ve been on a lemon kick lately so I decided to keep rolling with it and make this Lemon Honey Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry.
Lemon honey chicken is one of my favorite things to order when we do go out for Chinese food, which is rare because the choices are seriously lacking in our area. I love the fresh lemon flavor with that sweet honey, so good! I mimicked that flavor in the stir-fry sauce and it was delish! The broccoli was a last minute decision, but the dish was lacking in color and needed a vegetable. Broccoli just happens to be one that my husband will eat. The sauce is thickened with a little cornstarch, but don’t expect it to be that ultra thick sticky coating like you find on your takeout. The Lemon Honey Chicken and Broccoli Stir-Fry comes together in about 30 minutes making it a great choice for a healthy weeknight dinner!
