Honey Sesame Chicken Breast Panda Express (Copycat)
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon minced ginger
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds
- Optional: sliced green onions and red pepper flakes for garnish
In a bowl, whisk together honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch, and water. Set aside.
Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and ginger, and cook until fragrant.
Add chicken breasts to the skillet and cook until browned on both sides.
Pour the honey sesame sauce over the chicken, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened.
While the chicken is simmering, toast the sesame seeds in a separate dry skillet over medium heat until golden brown.
Once the chicken is done, sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over the top. Garnish with sliced green onions and red pepper flakes, if desired.
Serve the Honey Sesame Chicken Breast hot with steamed rice or noodles.
About Sperry Honey
We really hope you enjoyed this recipe. This might be a long shot, but if you're ever in need of some premium honey for your recipes, you can always order some of our honey here. Many people don't know this, but there's a solid chance that the imported honey on your grocery store shelves contains high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners. Honey producers do this to cut costs, which is gross, unhealthy, and disgusting. Our honey? Every bottle is made right here at our small apiary in North Dakota, and it's all 100% real farm honey. Appreciate you reading, and have a wonderful day :)
