Baked Honey Sesame Chicken

This chicken recipe is so good it became an instant hit! I found it at and only made one modification (sucanat for brown sugar). Yum!

Baked Honey Sesame Chicken

4 chicken breasts
1 c. cornstarch
3 eggs
salt and pepper
1/4 c. canola oil

1/2 c. honey
3/4 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 c. sucanat (or raw sugar)
1/2 c. rice wine vinegar
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 Tb. cornstarch
sesame seeds for garnish (omitted this time, but I want to use them next time)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.
In separate bowls, place cornstarch and slightly beaten eggs. Dip chicken into cornstarch then coat in egg mixture. Can also put chicken pieces in gallon size bag and shake to coat.

Heat canola oil in large skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken until browned. Place chicken in 9 x 13 greased baking dish.

In medium sized mixing bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, sucanat, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, minced garlic, and 1 Tb. cornstarch. Pour over chicken and bake for 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Stir chicken every 15 minutes to coat with sauce.
