Easy Honey Walnut Shrimp Copycat Recipe Is a Fast & Flavorful Dinner

There are some really good Asian food restaurants out there, so it's no wonder there are so many copycat recipes out there, too. These black pepper chicken, sweet fire chicken and orange chicken are all delicious, and don't forget the chow mein noodles. But we think this honey walnut shrimp recipe is one of our favorites!

This easy honey walnut shrimp recipe has crispy, juicy shrimp, candied walnuts and a sweet sauce. When you make it at home in about 25 minutes, it's fresh and steaming hot. If you like things saucy, you can double the sauce ingredients. Serve this delicious chicken recipe over rice for a quick and delicious dinner.
