Quick and easy chicken with macadamia nuts and honey

I devised this recipe last year. We like it a lot, and it's very quick.


(serves 2)


  1. Slice or chop all ingredients. Sautae the garlic in the sesame oil, until just fragrant. Add the dill and the chicken, and sautae for about five minutes.
  2. Add the green beans and the red pepper; sautae for another couple of minutes.
  3. Add the tomato and the macademia nuts; sautae another minute or two.
  4. Add the honey and the sesame seeds. Continue cooking just long enough to warm the honey.


This is wonderful served with couscous. I recommend using chicken broth when cooking the couscous.

If you want to take the time, you can thicken the sauce with 1/4 tsp arrowroot, or some cornstarch.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 20 minutes.
Precision: no need to measure.
