Instructions

  • In a large fry pan heat your olive oil on medium heat
  • Then put about half the sweet chili sauce in the bottom of the pan
  • Add your chicken
  • Cover chicken with other half of sweet chili sauce, squeeze on lime juice, and drizzle honey over top.
  • Saute stirring and flipping, making sure the sauce is not burning
  • Cook until chicken is cooked through and sauce is starting to turn dark (the sugars in the honey should be crystalizing and starting to burn)
  • Remove from heat and serve
