    This recipe Quickly became a family FavOrite!

    I doubled the sauce and added 1 lb chicken breasts (cut in Bite size pieces). Marinated chicken & Shrimp and cooked chicken first, then added shrimp to skillet once chicken was close to done. Served over cauliflower Rice (seasoned with garlic/green onions).

    We appreciate the simple & Delicious dinner!

    My husband is not a big fan of rice dishes. However he loved this. Simple and delicious. Definitely a keeper in the recipe box.

      Jodi twedt

      When the recipe says sauce what does that mean what sauce ?

        Layla

        The sauce is the mixture of honey, garlic, ginger and soy sauce.

      Layla

      So happy to hear you and your husband enjoyed the dish!!

    Nicole barrows

    Is the calories listed with the broccoli and rice also or do you need to factor that in as well.

      The calories listed include the broccoli and everything in the ingredient list.

    Candice

    Thanks for this awesome no frills recipe! I added some red pepper flakes and walnuts to give it a little extra flair (and a kick, since my husband wants everything spicy!) It was great. 🙂

    Lara

    Can,t wait to try this recipe. However, I need to avoid sugars. Is there a way I could replace the honey for something else?

    Thanks

    Lara

      Layla

      You can try reducing the amount of honey if you’d like.

      Haley

      Agave nectar might be a good alternative!

        Dee

        How much agave do you use ?

    Jen

    Maybe a dumb question but is each serving about a cups worth?

    Kala Jean Daley

    Made this tonight and omg super good! To thickin the sauce i just used some old fashioned flour and water mixed well in tipped pan to get juice to one side. Perfect love that its so easy can remember off the top of my head. Thanks for a new favorite in my house.

    Kaylea Armstrong

    I’m not a big cooker but my husband accidentally bought the already cooked shrimp. Can you still marinate like usual and do everything the same as recipe? Or do you need fresh shrimp?

      Layla

      I haven’t tried this with cooked shrimp but I would steam the broccoli then combine the broccoli marinade and cooked shrimp in pan on high heat just for 1-2 minutes.

    Traci

    Looks so good, trying it for my birthday dinner this evening. I did have a giggle at the shrimp can be marinated in the shrimp for up to 24 hours 🙂 Thank you!

    Nina H

    Making this now but do not have ginger only ground how much could I use?

    betsy colin

    As Jack said, looks like there are sesame seeds or something not invluded in the recipe that shows on the pic?

      Layla

      You’re right Betsy. There are sesame seeds. They are optional and used as garnish. To add, sprinkle as desired at the very end just before serving.

    S Woo

    Great recipe and extra recognition for the simplicity . I served this over rice and my husband ate it up. Thanks for sharing.

    Miss Bee

    This recipe was delish. However I found the sauce wasn’t enough. I was thinking of adding more sauce and a splash of maybe heavy cream to make it stick better. Any suggestions?

      Fran

      Try using a cornstarch slurry

    jack

    are they sesame seeds in the picture? if so how much did you add?

      Layla

      Yes there are. They are optional. I just sprinkle less than 1 teaspoon.
