A note about serious food allergies

Need some sugar in your bowl? This meal provides “sweetness” in droves. There's the chili lime sauce, with soy and honey, that lovingly coats the chicken and the dynamic duo of green: snap peas and broccoli. This meal is also sweet and easy to prepare, just a bit of chopping and cooking. Nothing too fancy or too complex. Also sweet, the low amount of calories to this dish, making it a feel-good, nice-and-easy, super-tasty meal. Sweeeet.
