A few years ago my father started beekeeping. I don’t know if there’s any other hobby with such a great learning curve and high propensity to fail as beekeeping. As pollinators, bees play a vital role in our ecosystem and food supply and at the same time they are sadly on the brink of extinction. There are widespread reports of staggering decline in bee populations due to pesticides, parasites and loss of habitat.
I have a small supply of honey from my father’s bee hives’ honey production from this past summer that I used in this Honey Pepper Chicken with Stir-Fry Vegetables. Despite the use of honey, this recipe is not too sweet. The honey pepper sauce that the chicken marinates in is quick, easy and balanced in flavor, with a little kick from the pepper. This is a nice weeknight chicken recipe and also works well for make ahead meal prep for lunches for the week.
