Requires preparing ahead of time, but very simple and well worth it! If you are a garlic fan, use 6-8 cloves of garlic for an extra kick!

Directions

  • Whisk together the sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, honey, and ginger in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add the chicken breast and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Stir in 1 tablespoon of butter and season with salt and pepper.

  • Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess, then add to the skillet. Discard the remaining marinade. Cook the chicken breast strips until no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes. Serve chicken over spaghetti.

I agree with Emily that adding some broth to make it more of a sauce is the way to go. My wife loved it and said we could definitely add this into the regular rotation -- which is fine with me as it's pretty simple to prepare. Very good dish! Read More

This chicken was amazing. I followed the recipe except with the omission of butter in its place I used olive oil with a dash of sesame oil which gave off a good aroma. My girlfriend says this now one of her favorites thanks for the great recipe. Read More

I made the marinade in the quantities listed but I only used two boneless chicken breasts cut into strips. Marinated for more like 6 hours and then poured most of the marinade into the pan with the chicken. Without any flour or cornstarch the sauce thickened up a bit and I served over rice. Other than planning this early (because of the marinating time) it's probably the easiest recipe I've tried. It had great flavour and we will definitely be adding this to the regular rotation. Might add some chopped peppers in with the onions next time for some color. Read More
