Honey Chicken (OAMC)

This is one of my favorite once a month cooking recipes. I make everything and put it in a ziploc bag and freeze! Pull it out of the freezer when ready and thaw in the fridge. The flavors marry and sink into the chicken while it thaws. You can either use pieces and stir fry or whole thighs and grill them under the broiler. My fam LOVES this with stir fried veggies! Super easy and super tasty! 

Honey Chicken

1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup tamari
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1″ cubes
2 cloves garlic
5 small onions, cut into 2″ pieces
2 red bell peppers, cut into 2″ pieces

In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, tamari and black pepper.  Add chicken, garlic, onions and peppers into the bowl, cover and marinade in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.
Toss it all in a pan and cook for 12-15 minutes, until chicken juices run clear.

Freezing Directions:
In a large freezer bag whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce and black pepper.  Place the chicken, garlic, onions and peppers into the bag, remove as much air as possible, seal and freeze.
