Honey Garlic Stir Fry

My hubby loves Chinese food. When we got married I hated it, but as the years have passed he's made me into a Chinese food lover too. It's hard to find a good Chinese restaurant so when we can't I make this and it satisfies our craving.

Honey Garlic Stir Fry
Serves 6

 1-2 lbs. chicken tenders or chicken breasts
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
pepper TT
2 zucchini, diced
1/2 small pkg. snow peas
1 onion, diced
6 pkgs. Ramen noodles, cooked according to pkg. directions

Honey Garlic Sauce

4 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp. butter
3/4 c. ketchup
1/2 c. honey
3 Tbsp. soy sauce

 Cut all veggies and preheat wok or regular large pan over med. heat. 
Season chicken with garlic & onion powder and pepper. Brown in pan until cooked through. 
Remove from pan and set aside. 
In same pan add more oil if necessary and add all veggies to pan. Saute for 5 minutes.

 Meanwhile make sauce. Put butter in small saucepan and melt. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Stir in ketchup, honey, and soy sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

 To veggie mixture: add 2 tbsp of water to pan. Cover and let veggies steam for 3 minutes. Add stir fry sauce, stir until well combined and heated through. Serve on top of Ramen noodles or rice.

Notes: I always double the sauce recipe because my family loves adding extra sauce. So feel free to do the same.
