This honey sesame chicken recipe is a great way to add some variety to your meals. It’s not tricky to make and is much better for you than the restaurant variety since it’s free of the commonly used sweeteners. Give it a shot!

What you’ll need:

4 chicken breasts
1 egg
1/4 cup arrowroot starch (available in the bulk section at local co-ops)
1 tbsp, 1 tsp coconut oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp grated ginger root
1/4 cup honey
3 tbsp coconut aminos
2 tsp sesame oil

How to make it:

1. Cut chicken into 1″ cubes, then toss in the whisked egg.
2. In a bowl, toss the chicken with arrowroot starch until all pieces are evenly covered.
3. Fry the chicken in a pan (using the tbsp of coconut oil) for 7-10 minutes, or until cooked through.
4. While the chicken is cooking, make the sauce. Combine 1 tsp coconut oil, garlic, grated ginger in a pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.
5. Add the honey, coconut aminos and sesame oil, and whisk together.
6. Whisk 1 tbsp water with 1 tsp arrowroot and add to the pot. Then stir occasionally as the sauce heats and thickens.
7. Once the sauce has thickened, pour it over the chicken until all pieces are coated.
8. Serve over steamed broccoli with some sesame seeds on top, and you’re all set.

This made a good amount of food, but it went fairly quick. If this sounds like something you’re really going to like, or if you’re cooking for more than a couple people, I’d recommend doubling the recipe. Enjoy!
