How to make it

  • Heat a medium saucepan or pot over medium-high heat
  • Add 1 tbls of the vegetable oil and the butter to the pot.
  • Once the butter melts, add the rice, season with salt and pepper, and lightly brown the rice for 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Add the wine and allow it to evaporate entirely, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken stock and the lemon zest to the rice.
  • Bring the liquid to a boil.
  • Cover and reduce the heat.
  • Cook the rice for 18 to 20 minutes, or until tender.
  • Once the rice only has about 3 more minutes of cook time, remove the lid and add the sliced snow peas. *Don't stir the rice; just add the snow peas on top and put the lid on.* They should still have some crunch to them.
  • While the rice is cooking, preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat with the remaining 2 tbls of vegetable oil.
  • Add the chicken, season with salt and pepper, and brown for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the red pepper flakes, onions, garlic, ginger, and honey.
  • Stir frequently and continue to cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the onions are tender.
  • Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups of chicken stock to the pan and bring up to a simmer.
  • Once at a simmer, combine the cornstarch with a splash of water, and mix to create a thin paste.
  • Add the cornstarch mixture to the simmering chicken, mix thoroughly, and continue to cook for 2 minutes, or until the liquid is thickened.
  • Add the sliced scallions and the lemon juice to the chicken and stir to combine.
  • Serve the honey chicken over the snow pea rice.
