Heat 1-2 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. While oil is heating up, steam carrots in microwave for 3-4 minutes.
Season chicken cubes with salt and pepper to taste. Allow to rest.
Add broccoli, carrots, red peppers, and zucchini to skillet. Stir fry until vegetables are tender (approx. 3-4 mins.).
Remove veggies from skillet, and allow to rest.
Add remaining oil to skillet and stir fry seasoned chicken. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side.
Add the chopped garlic, and cook for approx. 30 seconds.
Add the veggies back to the pan, and cook for a couple more minutes until the veggies are warmed through.
In a bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, honey, and soy sauce. Pour over chicken and veggies. Cook for one minute.
Whisk cornstarch with equal amount of cold water. Add to skillet. Bring to a boil, and cook for another minutes or so until sauce begins to thicken.
Serve over rice.
