Easy Sesame Chicken

Ingredients

  • 0.5 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 0.5 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 0.25 cup vegetable oil
  • 0.25 cup honey
  • 0.25 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 0.25 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chile-garlic sauce (such as Sriracha┬«)
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds, divided
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Steps

Step1

Whisk cornstarch, salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl; add chicken and toss to coat.

Step2

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry chicken in batches, turning occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.

Step3

Whisk together honey, soy sauce, rice vinegar, chile-garlic sauce, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon sesame seeds in a small bowl.

Step4

Pour sauce over chicken in the skillet; toss to coat chicken. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until sauce thickens and chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 2 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 2 minutes.

Step5

Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
