Best Chicken Stir fry recipe
I like to use a frozen vegetable mixture on those days where I am pressed for time.
So for this recipe, I have used one of my favorite frozen “Asian vegetable mixes” which has broccoli, carrots, green beans, water crescents in it.
However you can use whatever vegetables you like. Fresh or frozen will work, just make sure that if your using frozen to defrost them prior to cooking.
If you end up giving this recipe a try, do let me know in the comments below.

- Start by marinating the chicken, dice up the chicken into bite sized pieces and then place in a bowl along with the lime juice. Marinade in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes, the lime really helps to flavor the chicken, so do not skip this step.

- In the same wok add the "vegetables" minced garlic and saute for 2 minutes.
- In two seperate bowls, make the sauce by starting to mix the honey with 1 tbsp of lime juice then add the remaining ingredients. Next in the other bowl mix the cornstarch mixture with the chicken stock till blended.
- Add the cooked chicken back into the walk, pouring in the corn starch/stock mixture. Allow the stock to thicken up before adding in the "sauce" mixture. Along with the sesame seeds.
