honey sesame chickenIngredients

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp milk
  •  1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tbsp corn starch


  • Cut chicken into bite-size cubes.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • While the oil is heating, wisk together the milk and egg white in a shallow bowl to make an egg wash.
  • Put the flour in another bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Roll each piece of chicken in the egg wash, then in the flour, to coat.
  • After all the chicken is breaded, cook in the oil until the chicken is no longer pink and the breading is browned, about 6 minutes.
  • While the chicken is cooking, combine the ingredients for the sauce in a separate bowl. Wisk until the corn starch is fully dissolved.
  • Once the chicken is done, add the sauce to the skillet and heat until the sauce thickens, about 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve immediately over rice.
