Servings: 4


  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp cold water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce plus 1 tbsp
  • 3 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 piece of ginger thumb-sized, peeled and minced.
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 4 chicken breasts cut into chunky strips
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • small bunch of scallions chopped
  • cooked rice for serving
  • green vegetable such as broccoli and kale, for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the cornstarch and cold water in a small saucepan and stir together to combine.
  • Add in the sugar, soy sauce, cider vinegar, minced garlic, ginger, honey and pepper.
  • Stir together and heat, stirring slowly until the sauce comes to a boil. Turn off the heat.
  • Place the chunks of chicken in an oven-proof dish. Pour over the sauce and stir if needed to make sure all of the chicken is coated in the sauce.
  • Place in the oven (no lid needed) to cook for 30-35 minutes, stirring once or twice during cooking to ensure the top of the chicken doesn't get too dark. Check the chicken is cooked by cutting open a large piece and ensuring it's no longer pink in the middle (place back in the oven for another few minutes if it is).
  • Serve the chicken with boiled rice and green vegetables, topped with sesame seeds and chopped scallions.
