Honey Garlic Ginger Stir-Fry Sauce

Honey Garlic Ginger Stir-Fry is now officially in my permanent dinner rotation. Stir fry is one of my favorite ways to keep my eating on track. It is so easy to get your meat and veggies when you load up with stir-fry. Sometimes I even skip the rice too. Also? Chopsticks. They rock. They are fun to eat with, and they force me to slow down a bit and really focus and enjoy what I’m eating.

This honey garlic and ginger stir fry packs a flavor punch! You can spice it up a bit as well by adding some sriracha if you’d like. This is very similar to my Spicy Chili Garlic Stir-Fry Sauce, but packs more of a gingery kick than that recipe. Equally easy to throw together, though!

You can get crazy and switch up the vegetables and proteins in this is you’d like, but for tonight’s dinner, I really wanted to go with a traditional mix of chicken and broccoli. It’s one of my favorite Chinese dishes and this one was a take-out fake-out winner.

You can use fresh whole garlic if you want to, but I totally make use of those giant jars of minced garlic and don’t even think twice. I use it in everything I’d use garlic powder or salt in, everything I’d normally use fresh garlic with – so basically, everything.

Once you mix the sauce together, set it aside and get your wok really hot. Like, super super hot.

It’s the key to a good stir-fry.

Also? Work in small batches. Large batches = loss of heat = soggy stir-fry. Small batches also cook much faster, so you aren’t really losing any time overall in the cooking process even if you are cooking for an army like I am.

Once the chicken is no longer pink on the outside, toss the broccoli into the pan and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. With the heat still on high, add a tablespoon of water into the pan and cover to steam for 1-2 minutes. This will finish cooking the chicken and lightly steam the broccoli as well.

Remove the cover and allow any remaining liquid to cook off, and add in the stir-fry sauce. Stir constantly until it is thickened.

Serve hot with some white rice and sriracha for that little extra kick.
