This Chinese garlic chicken recipe is a flavorful stir fry that the whole family will love.


  • 6 servings rice
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 8 oz. snow peas
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 lb. chicken breast, cut into 1” pieces
  • green onions (optional, for garnish)


  1. Prepare ingredients:
    Prepare rice according to directions.
    Whisk together minced garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, and corn starch until smooth.
    Cut chicken into 1″ pieces.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add snow peas to pan and cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 4-6 minutes. Season with a splash of soy sauce. Add more soy sauce or salt if necessary.
  3. Meanwhile, in another large skillet or wok, heat remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat. Add chicken and garlic mixture to pan and stir fry, stirring frequently, until chicken is cooked through and sauce has thickened, about 5-7 minutes.
