Servings 4


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup canola or grapeseed oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1-2 green onions, chopped

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.

Divide flour, eggs and cornstarch into 3 separate bowls. Dip chicken into flour, egg mixture and then cornstarch (in that order).

Heat canola oil in a dutch oven or large skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken until golden 3-4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a sheet pan.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine sugar, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic. Pour sauce over chicken and coat really well. Drizzle honey over chicken. Bake 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and garnish with green onions and sesame seeds.
