HONEY LEMON CHICKEN AND BROCCOLI BOWLS
1 cup rice of choice
12 ounces broccoli florets, about 2-3 cups
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 green onion, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon sesame seeds
FOR THE LEMON GLAZE
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup pineapple juice
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon Sriracha, optional
In a large saucepan of 1 1/2 cups water, cook rice according to package instructions; set aside.
Place broccoli florets into a steamer or colander set over a pan of boiling water. Cover and steam for 5 mins, or until cooked through and vibrant green; set aside. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper, to taste. Add chicken to the skillet and cook until golden, about 2-3 minutes; set aside.
To make the glaze, stir in chicken stock, pineapple juice, lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger, garlic, cornstarch and Sriracha to the skillet. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in chicken and gently toss to combine. Serve chicken immediately with rice and broccoli, garnished with green onion and sesame seeds, if desired.
