This is another really easy one & another one using the awesome vegan chicken from Beyond Meat. If you are not vegan, you can use honey rather than agave & maple syrup. And if you eat meat – you could use real chicken – just be sure to cook it thoroughly.
I served this with my Cilantro Lime Farro & I recommend the combo enthusiastically!
Vegan Garlic and Lime Glazed Chicken
Serve 2 well
9 oz vegan chicken – thawed & cubed
1-2 TBS olive or coconut oil
1 TBS soy sauce
juice & zest of 2 limes
1 TBS agave (or honey – if you are not vegan)
1/2 TBS maple syrup (or honey – if you are not vegan)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 TBS brown sugar
2 garlic cloves – minced
Cilantro – as garnish
Lime wedges – as garnish
(Double the quantities of the soy sauce through to the garlic – if you like more sauce than you see in these images)
You can pan sear the chicken if you want but it isn’t necessary. To do that – just heat some oil in a pan over med-high heat & brown the chicken. Put the chicken in a bowl. Whisk together the soy sauce, agave & maple syrup (or honey), lime juice & zest, garlic & spices.
Add a little more oil to the pan if you need to & heat the sauce over med-high heat until the spices dissolve & it thickens just a bit. Stir the chicken in – whether or not you pre-browned it. Heat through.
Just that easy!
Serve with rice or ramen noodles or Cilantro Lime Farro! Be sure to squeeze lots of fresh lime juice over it as a garnish.
