This Paleo-friendly Honey Sesame Chicken from Primalbitesblog.com is AMAZING!!! The perfect fall meal!
Serves: 4
  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • ¼ cup arrowroot or tapioca starch
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger root
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp water+ 1 tsp arrowroot or tapioca starch (whisked together to make a slurry)
  1. Chop the chicken breast into 1 inch cubes. Toss chopped chicken in the whisked egg.
  2. Move chicken to a large bowl, sprinkle the starch over it, and then toss to evenly distribute the starch so that the chicken pieces are coated in an egg-starch mixture.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large pan. Pour the chicken into the pan with any remaining egg-starch mixture. Fry for 7-10 minutes, until cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, make the sauce. In a small pot, heat 1 tsp coconut oil, then add the minced garlic and grated ginger. Saute over medium heat for a minute or so, until fragrant.
  5. Add the honey, coconut aminos and sesame oil, and whisk together.
  6. Pour the slurry (water+starch) into the pot, and whisk to combine. Let the sauce heat and thicken, keeping an eye on it and stirring occasionally.
  7. Once the sauce has thickened, pour it over the cooked chicken, and toss to coat evenly.
  8. Serve over cauliflower rice or broccoli, with a sprinkle of sesame seeds!
