1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
For the Chicken
¼ cup cornstarch
2 eggs beaten
½ cup all purpose flour
oil for frying
For the Honey Sauce:
⅓ cup honey
¼ cup low sodium soy sauce or Tamari sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 cloves garlic minced
¼ cup sesame seeds for garnish
Place eggs in a bowl and stir with a fork until blended.
Combine flour and cornstarch in a plate and stir together until incorporated.
Heat about 3-inches of oil in a deep frying pan.
Dip each piece of chicken in the egg mixture and then dip it into flour mixture.
Add chicken pieces to the hot oil and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.
Drain chicken on paper towels.
In the meantime, prepare the honey sauce.
Set a pan over medium heat; add in honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, and garlic. Whisk to combine.
Bring sauce to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer and continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
Remove from heat and pour sauce over chicken.
Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
If you want a thicker sauce, combine ½ tablespoon cornstarch with ½ tablespoon cold water; whisk to combine and then whisk into the sauce. Cook for a minute, or until heated through.
