Asian Honey Chicken

Good Morning!!!!  It's a cold day here in Ohio and I thought I'd share a recipe with you with a little SPICE to warm you up today!!!  Oh how I love this time of year!!  Winter is always my favorite season!  As I'm writing this I'm snuggled up in my favorite pink bathrobe, the kids are sleeping, the fireplace is going and I've got a mug of cocoa on the desk next to me.....this is such a cozy and snuggly time of year!!!  I love all seasons, but Fall and Winter are always the best :)  

So on with another yummy recipe for you.  This chicken is delicious piled on top of some fresh white or brown rice with a little soy sauce on the side!  Adjust the amount of red pepper flakes and garlic to your own taste and you'll have a new favorite meal at your house I'm sure!!!  (I make this about twice a month here in our home!!  My hubby loves it!!)  
Asian Honey Chicken
1/4 c. olive oil
1 1/2 lbs. chicken tenderloins, diced

12 oz. bottle of honey

Tonight we’re expecting a lot of snow and ice…we have a winter storm warning here in our area and I’m loving it!!  I have a houseful of groceries and no plans for the weekend, so I plan on staying in, cooking a lot, and spending lots of time snuggling with my family!
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!!

(Come on, who doesn’t want to watch these beautiful, glamorous SKINNY celebrities on tv, while sitting in your sweats eating brownies?? LOL!) I remembered that i had stashed this recipe in the back of my recipe book a while back and I twhipped it up and just had to share it with is AMAZING!!!!  The best part is…you’ll probably have all the ingredients in your pantry/fridge!!  ENJOY!!!

***I have since discovered that a great way to make this up quickly is to use small tupperware containers and mix up all of your dry ingredients. So that way, when you get a craving, you'v got it already halfway made up and you don't have to get out so many supplies!! I have several ready to go in my  pantry :)
