One of the most simple recipes I’ve made! I was having my sister over for dinner, but we were going to boot camp first. I had some chicken breasts already in the fridge and brown rice in my cabinet. All I had to do was get some broccoli florets and I was in business! I already had my soy sauce and toasted sesame oil – MUST HAVES for this recipe! I happen to use both of these a lot when cooking. Here we go!
Recipe: (serves 4)
- 3 large chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup soy sauce (I used reduced sodium)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 2 Tablespoons ketchup
- 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon sriracha
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1 Tablespoon freshly grated ginger
- olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
- sesame seeds, for garnish
- scallions, for garnish
- serve with broccoli and brown rice
note: I didn’t use much salt at all because the soy sauce has A LOT of salt in it. I reccommend tasting first before adding any salt.
- Cut your chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes.
- Heat up a large skillet to medium-high heat.
- Drizzle some olive oil into your skillet.
- Coat chicken in flour and transfer to your hot pan.
- Brown chicken on all sides.
- Make your sauce – combine soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, ketchup, brown sugar, sriracha, garlic and ginger in a bowl and whisk together.
- Add to your pan with the chicken and turn down the heat to low.
- Let simmer until your sauce gets thick and chicken is cooked through.
- Add sesame seeds – as many as you want!
- Serve with your steamed broccoli and brown rice!
