Honey-Ginger Chicken Stir Fry

Honey, honey, honey!  What to do with all the honey that I extracted last year?  This is a problem that I love to have.

This year I am going to 1) attempt to replace sugar with honey in my current recipes (where it make sense) and 2) try more recipes that use honey instead of sugar.

Early this morning, I did a search for a chicken stir-fry made with honey.  I came across this Honey-Ginger Chicken Stir Fry recipe and decided to give it a try.

After identifying a few changes, I made a quick list of items I needed from the store. On the way home from work, I picked up the needed ingredients, and when I got home I began.  This recipe took me 1 hour from start to finish.  Next time, I may get a bag of frozen mixed veggies to have on hand when I want to make this in less time… but I’m sure it won’t compare to fresh.
