  • 4 chicken breasts (about 600g), trimmed and cut into 2-3cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 40g piece of ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 6 tbsp soy sauce
  • 5 tbsp honey
  • ½-1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbsp sunflower, vegetable, rice bran or rapeseed oil
  • cooked rice and steamed broccoli, to serve (optional)


  1. Tip the chicken into a bowl, sprinkle over the flour and some seasoning and toss until the chicken is evenly coated.

  2. Combine the ginger, garlic, soy, honey and half the lemon juice in a bowl. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok over a high heat and fry the chicken for 3-4 mins until lightly golden. Tip in the honey sauce and stir-fry for 10 mins, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has reduced enough to coat the back of a spoon. Taste for seasoning and squeeze over the remaining lemon juice, if needed, then serve with rice and steamed broccoli, if you like.
