This is a healthier version of honey-sesame chicken that's pan-fried instead of deep-fried--an easy, home-cooked meal that's salty, sweet, and a little bit spicy. It's a combination of flavors so deliciously right that you'll never think about Asian takeout again. Serve over rice or noodles, and garnish with sesame seeds and green onion slices.

Directions

Instructions Checklist

  • Heat vegetable oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and stir-fry until chicken is opaque on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.

  • Reduce heat to medium and add the sauce to the wok. Whisk together water and cornstarch in a small bowl and add to the sauce, stirring constantly until the sauce starts to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes. Add chicken back to the wok, stir, and cook until reheated, about 2 minutes.

Easy to prepare. Only adjusted the heat to our tastes, so enjoyed the flavour. Served on rice. Great for a weekday meal. Next time might try with some chopped carrot, snow pea and bean sprouts for some crunch. Fun recipe. Read More

Came out great! I did not thicken it with the corn starch, just let it simmer and we loved it! Read More

Nice recipe- I might reduce the honey next time but you can control your spice heat the way you like it I was lazy and decided not to do the premix in the bowl. I would suggest it s worth the extra dirty bowl.?? Read More

This was delicious and easy to make. I reduced the cornstarch by 1/3 because I served over rice and didn't want the sauce too thick. It was perfect. Read More

I made it as written except I marinated the chicken in the sauce for 20 minutes then drained before I stir fried it in two batches. Added great mix mash of veggies. Excellent and I control the spice and salt. Read More
