Honey Braised Chicken with Vegetable Fried Rice

On with 0 Comment
Honey is a natural medicine and is ideal for daily consumption in small quantities. Today's chicken recipe uses this wonderful natural ingredient for making a delicious chicken preparation. To make it wholesome, we've also included fried vegetable rice. You can repeat this same process with duck or turkey meat too. Since chicken meat is quite tender and cooks very quickly, use honey in a moderate amount on a low flame. Since this recipe has a mild sweet flavor, keep the vegetable fried rice bit spicy to compliment it well. Although I've used large chicken pieces for this recipe, you can cut them into small parts too. Do not refrigerate it for long time as the moist chicken may disintegrate and may not taste best.
