How to Store Honey Garlic Chicken
When stored properly, honey garlic chicken can last for 3-4 days on average. If you want to be on the safe side, you should use your cooked chicken within three days of refrigeration.
It’s best to store it in an airtight container so that no odours transfer and ruin your dish!
If you’re not planning on eating your leftovers within 3 days, then it’s time to whip out that plastic wrap and aluminum foil. You can store honey garlic chicken in the freezer for up to three months, but make sure you use a freezer-safe container or plastic freezer bag.
If you don’t, then your chicken will take on any funky smells from the freezer, and it’ll affect the flavor.
About the Ingredients for Honey Garlic Chicken
Chicken – I used chicken thighs here because they finish at the right time for the potatoes to get cooked through without drying out.
Honey – Just honey. Any kind you like.
Soya sauce – You can also substitute with tamari or coconut aminos if desired.
Garlic – I always use more than 4 cloves but I love garlic. 4 is sufficient for normal people.
Vinegar – Rice wine vinegar is best but you can swap with whatever vinegar you have on hand. White vinegar is probably the closest substitute. You could also use lemon juice. The point is to balance out all the sweet and salt with a little acid.
Carrots, Brocolli – You could really substitute with any similar vegetables here and it would be tasty. I just think carrots and brocolli with the honey garlic marinade is amazing.
Potatoes – Baby potatoes are the best and easiest choice here, but you could also just chop a regular sized potato into smaller chunks. If you wanted to make this dish with boneless chicken breast you will need to dice the potatoes small enough to cook through in 18-20 minutes.
Oil – Any neutral flavoured oil will work here.
Sesame Seeds – They add a lovely crunch, highly recommend!
