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.
