1 lb (0.5 kg) chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips against the grain
1/2 cup (125 mL) honey garlic sauce
1 tsp (5 mL) ginger, ground
1 1/2 cup (375 mL) basmati rice
3 cups (750 mL) water
1 1/2 cup (375 mL) white rice
1 tsp (5 mL) sesame oil, for garnish
2 cups (500 mL) stir-fry vegetable mix, (optional to purchase frozen)
honey garlic sauce, for garnish


1 Place chicken in freezer bag and pour honey-garlic sauce and ground ginger into resealable bag making certain the chicken is coated well. Allow to marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
2 In a saucepan bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
3 Meanwhile, heat oil in large, nonstick frying pan or wok at high heat. Add marinated chicken and toss until slightly browned and cooked through then reduce heat to medium.
4 Add stir-fry veggies to pan and toss. Stir until well coated and veggies are cooked through but still crisp. Finish with a little honey garlic sauce and sesame oil before serving. Serve over rice.
