I’ll be honest. I’m really starting to miss my grill. You see, I only have a small camping grill that is currently buried by snow. It’s pretty sad. My grill is one of the key ingredients in my healthy eating and without it, I’m lost.

I’ve been trying to come up with healthy meals that I can make on my stove or in the oven during these colder months. It can be difficult to cook on the stove without using gobs of oil, which is why I like to grill. No oil necessary.

So in lieu of grilled chicken every night, I have turned to this delicious stir-fry to fill me up. It’s quick, it’s simple. You get your whole grains, protein and vegetables. It’s perfectly healthy.

I am curious to know what some of your go-to healthy dinner recipes are. I’m always looking for suggestions!

Serves: 3-4 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 1-inch)
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • (optional) 1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds

Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce and honey. Add chicken, and stir to coat. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Steam broccoli in a separate pot until al dente.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade, and add to skillet. Saute until nearly cooked through (with the insides still slightly pink), about 5 minutes.
  4. Add in the garlic, scallions, and the reserved marinade to the pan. Saute for an additional 2 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the garlic is fragrant. Remove from heat and stir in sesame oil. Serve immediately with rice, garnished with toasted sesame seeds if desired.
