honey lemon ginger chicken with rice and broccoli in a white bowl.

I love a fast, easy and healthy meal. Especially when I am watching what I eat. This dish was full of flavor and you don’t have to compromise on taste!

Honey lemon ginger chicken cooking in a skillet.I have been eating clean for 28 days now! That is a HUGE accomplishment for a food blogger. I have had no cheat meals, no treats, nothing. I am on a mission to lose this baby weight. I am so close I can almost taste it. Crossfit plus having a nutritionist is finally getting it done. When you have to weigh into someone and get your fat pinched, it makes you think twice about eating that chocolate! 😉 Yesterday I was able to wear one of my pre-pregnancy shirts. My son said, Mom! You look skinny! That felt so good coming from him. He has been including in his prayers each night that I will have help losing weight. Oh kids. Gotta love them! 🙂

Anyway. Back to this chicken. I love adding delicious meals into the healthy eating rotation. I couldn’t believe how incredible this was. The glaze over the chicken was fantastic! So sticky and the honey lemon ginger all complemented each other perfectly. So full of flavor and SO delicious! I know you will love it too!

  1. Very good and tasty. Just starting to experiment with ginger and this was good. A little sweet for my taste but a good recipe. TY. 😉

  2. 5 stars
    I’ve made this before and will be making it again. I would like to freeze half of it for another time. Does it freeze well? I really hope so!

  3. I made this twice, once I cut the recipe in half because I am only one person. Although you use 3 breasts it really is only enough for two people, I think. I absolutely love it. But it is sweet. I imagine you could cut down on the honey. I also added some scallion slices for color. Have it over rice. Yum
