Honey Lemon Chicken

I found this recipe on a blog that I follow – Closet Cooking. It was so easy to make and super tasty. I look forward to making it again.

2 chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
1 lemon (juice and zest)
2 Tbsp honey
¼ cup chicken stock
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 green onion sprigs, chopped (for garnish)
Cut chicken breasts into cube sized pieces. Season with salt and pepper. In a frying pan over med-high heat, drizzle EVOO and brown all sides of chicken; cook until almost done. Remove chicken from pan; set aside. 
In the same pan, add ginger and cook for about one minute. Add lemon juice, zest, honey, stock, salt and pepper. Reduce heat and allow to thicken. (NOTE: if sauce is too thin, whisk in a tablespoon of cornstarch.) 
Add chicken breast, coat with honey lemon mixture and let chicken finish cooking all the way through.
Serve over rice and sprinkle with chopped green onions.
