Light Honey Lemon Chicken Stir Fry bursting with crisp tender asparagus, red bell peppers and sweet mangoes (may sub pineapple) smothered in a tantalizing, easy sweet, refreshing lemon sauce. Spring is on the table in 30 minutes with a cook time of 10 minutes!
This stir fry is bursting with everything I love about spring. Well almost everything. We’ll save the raspberries and strawberries for dessert time.
Lemon. I’m obsessed, if you couldn’t tell by my recent Facebook shares. Its refreshing, bright, tangy and makes practically everything taste better especially when combined with the sweetness of honey. A ying and yang match made in heaven. The Honey Lemon sauce is the perfect balance of honey and lemon juice with a splash of soy and apple cider vinegar with a base of chicken broth, enlivened by garlic, ginger and Sriracha. Simply mix them in a bowl and throw them into the stir fry with the rest of the ingredients for a sweet citrus sauce you’ll want to drink. Try and contain yourself.
Asparagus. Its crisp and tender, hearty and light and like I mentioned in my 15 Minute Roasted Balsamic Brown Butter Asparagus – its just so awkward yet happy. And you’ll be happy with the fresh crispness it adds to this stir fry especially when smothered in Honey Lemon Sauce.
Mangoes. I love mangoes all year but their bright freshness just screams spring and their sweetness compliments the tang of the honey lemon sauce like they have been searching for each other all year long. Happy to reunite them.
My new floor. You don’t think the flooring place will mind that I took all my pictures on my flooring sample do you? I don’t want to give it back. But pretty soon my place will be covered with it. Happy spring indeed!
But seriously, you really need to make this Honey Lemon Chicken Stir Fry. The chicken is lightly breaded in cornstarch, ginger, garlic, onion and paprika to create light texture and more flavor packed morsels AND there is no messy egg involved. Simply toss your chicken in the bag with the spices and you are ready to stir fry for a couple minutes That’s it. The most time consuming part of a stir fry is always the chopping, but when it comes time to stir fry, this meal comes together in 10 minutes! If you are looking for a 10 minute meal, then simply have all your ingredients ready to go beforehand and store in the refrigerator until “Go” time.
