I absolutely love Honey Seared Chicken especially when it comes from places like P.F Chang’s; however, it’s not always as healthy as I want it from there. What’s a girl to do? Make your own…and skip the fatty batter and oil!
Does it taste the same? Not exactly but very close! It taste close enough that you really will not notice that it isn’t fried. It makes for a light, delicious dinner served over a bed of rice with steamed broccoli.
Now, just a note to keep in mind when making this it is best served fresh and warm. I usually eat leftovers fairly well but this one taste much better right off the stove, I think it has to do with the variety of ingredients in the sauce mixture that when sitting for a while it changes the flavors up a bit.
I ate this up for dinner and felt like I had just stopped by P.F Chang’s although I’m fairly certain my version has a lot less calories. This is a great dish for an at home date night too. My husband and I love to do at home dates after the kids go to bed and it’s so inexpensive that makes it a win-win!
I adapted this recipe from Food.com, primarily altering it to be both gluten free and not fried. Are you ready for a tasty dinner?
