1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
6 tablespoons low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

1. In a small bowl, whisk 1 Tbsp. water with cornstarch until smooth. Whisk in honey, soy sauce and broth.

2. Warm oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add onion, garlic, ginger and crushed red pepper; cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly.
