Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast or boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (divided)
  • 1 cup chopped baby bok choy
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas or snow peas
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli or broccolini 
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 3 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced 


  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. To make the sauce, combine the cornstarch and water. Mix well. Add the chicken broth, soy sauce and honey. Set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Drop the chicken into the skillet and cook, stirring, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove to a plate. 
  3. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Add the vegetables and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 30 seconds more. 
  4. Put the chicken back into the skillet. Pour in the sauce and cook until it thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Serve over rice.
