Josh made it for friends last night and it was a big hit. I highly recommend this recipe. We can't remember the original source, but it is DELICIOUS!
Ingredients (sometimes we like to double it to have lots of extra sauce)
- 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 to 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes(depends on how hot you like your food)
- 2-4 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
- 1/4 cup chopped scallions
- Cut chicken breast into 1 inch strips or bite size pieces.
- Heat a large non-stick pan that has been sprayed with Pam(or 2 tablespoons of sesame oil for extra flavor) over medium heat.
- Cook chicken for about 6 minutes or until no longer pink. Turn the pieces every couple of minutes.
- While chicken is cooking, mix together honey, soy sauce, water, corn starch, ginger, and red pepper flakes.
- Whisk until no corn starch lumps remain.
- When chicken is no longer pink, add sauce to the pan with chicken.
- The heat should cause the sauce to begin to thicken. If the sauce is too thick add a little water.
- Sprinkle with sesame seeds
- Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until chicken starts to soak up sauce.
- When plating the chicken and sauce, Josh likes to garnish with some chopped scallions and of course more sesame seeds.
