Honey Chicken

I love Chinese food, but hate the cost and sodium content you get at most restaurants, This made for  a quick and delicious meal.  I served it over rice with steamed broccoli on the side. When I ate it for lunch the next day I stirred the broccoli in and it added great flavor.  The kids loved it!
Honey Chicken
4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 Tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup honey (I added just a bit more.)
1/2 cup diced onions
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons corn starch
Dice chicken breast into about one inch pieces. Heat oil in a saute pan over medium heat.  Add chicken and cook for about 5 minutes, or until they are browned.  Add onions and cook just a couple minutes more.   In a bowl mix together the water and cornstarch then add soy sauce, honey and ginger.  Carefully pour the mixture in with the chicken.
 
Stir. Bring the liquid to a boil, put the lid on and simmer for 10 minutes. 
The sauce will not seem very thick, but will thicken more after it is taken off the stove. If by chance your sauce is a little too thick, add just a bit of water to get the desired consistency. Serve over rice.
