Fragrant Sticky Chicken

Another simple, easy to assemble, tasty freezer meal! This would go well with a Chinese inspired side dish like Baby Bok Choy with Garlic or a vegetable stir fry and rice. If you triple this, you will use a full can of chicken broth and approximately 1 bottle of soy sauce.

From Meals for a Month

1/3 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. chicken broth
1 T. grated gingerroot
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
1/4 c. honey

Combine soy sauce, broth, and ginger. Mix well, then add chicken breasts. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours; then pack into ziploc bag and freeze. Reserve honey in the pantry. (I skipped the refrigerator step...).

To thaw and cook: Thaw chicken in marinade overnight in the refrigerator. Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium heat, then add chicken and marinade. Cook 5-8 minutes on one side, then turn chicken, add honey, cover, and cook an additional 8-10 minutes until chicken is thoroughly cooked and sauce is reduced.

Serves 4
