#FoodieFriday; Easy Recipe: Spicy Honey Soy Chicken with Veggies

If you’re looking for an easy recipe to go through and indulge in for dinner, then this is for you. I’m currently doing a 120% course load…in the summer…when the recommended course load is 60%, max. I’m also a major foodie. So with this being said, one can understand why I want to eat things that are delicious, good for me and easy to make. I genuinely made all this within an hour (outside of marination time), so I’m definitely excited to share it with you all. Let’s get into it!

I’d suggest serving this with some hoisin sauce and good ol’ sriracha on the side for those that want a little more oomph in their bite. You can easily opt out of rice noodles and just enjoy the veggies and chicken for a low carb option for this dinner. I would also suggest using low sodium soy sauce! How’s that for an easy recipe for dinner? Enjoy!

Good vibes, always.
