Crunchy Honey Chicken

Today is a huge day for me! as most of you know i have been losing weight since last year i got out of the 120s lbs today! i have been working so hard. i wish i started years ago when i noticed my weight gain after high school. i decided to make a nice fulling dinner i found this on How Sweet it is blog  its amazing! i always have honey on hand for my oatmeal which is my favourite! you can add any kind of veggies you like i just got red peppers and snap peas in mine.

1 pound thinly sliced, boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 egg whites
1/3 cup cornstarch (or flour – for dredging)
1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
a handful of sugar snap peas (about 3/4 cup)
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
salt and pepper to taste

Prepare and slice all veggies. In 2 separate bowls, add the egg whites (lightly beaten) and the cornstarch or flour in the other bowl. (The cornstarch will yield a “crispier” chicken). Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add veggies with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and sauté for about 5 minutes, until softened. Add in soy sauce and garlic and stir so veggies are coated, about 60 seconds. Remove from skillet and set aside in a bowl.
Cut chicken into 1-inch pieces and season with salt and pepper. Heat the same skillet (or you can use a different one, I just use the same to make it easier) over medium-high heat and add remaining olive oil. Dip chicken pieces in egg whites and then lightly dredge in cornstarch. Add to the skillet and let brown for 2-3 minutes, then flip. Continue with remaining chicken pieces, and do so in batches if needed.
Once chicken is cooked, add veggies back in the skillet. Add honey and thoroughly mix to combine. Taste and season with salt, pepper, additional honey or soy sauce. Serve with rice.
