Honey  Sesame Chicken


Made this tonight to go with a fried  rice. This recipe turned out just like a dish from restaurant. Easy and tasty, so much better than take out!


  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped into 1-5 inch pieces
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 6 tbs flour
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 3 tbs corn starch
  • sesame seeds
  • fresh green onions, chopped

For the sauce:

  • 6 tbs honey
  • 4 tbs ketchup
  • 3 tbs sugar
  • 1 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 tbs white vinegar
  • 3 tbs soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbs cold water+ 2 tbs corn starch


Whisk all sauce ingredients together, set aside.

Place beaten egg, 3 tbs corn starch, and flour in three separate bowls.
Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture, then flour (toss to coat), and lastly in corn starch (toss to coat).

Heat oil over medium heat in a large pan or skillet.
Add chicken and cook, stirring throughout to ensure even cooking, 5-10 minutes until cooked though.

Add sauce to your skillet and bring to a boil.
Whisk cold water and 2 tbs corn starch together in a small bowl until corn starch is dissolved.

Add corn starch mixture to skillet. Stir until sauce thickens.
Serve over rice and top with sesame seeds and green onions. Enjoy!

Note: If you like your dishes really saucy, double the sauce recipe!
