Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Boneless skinless chicken breast (Tenders killer too)
  • 2 Oranges (Or one cup of juice)
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons sriracha (Or gochujang, if you have it)
  • 1 Tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 Teaspoons Cornstarch
  • 1 Teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Cook chicken in your favorite method (grilled on medium high for 10-12 minutes, baked/air fried in a 450 deg F oven for 15 minutes, or in cubes sautéed in a pan for 7-8 minutes ) until 165 deg F.
  • As chicken cooks, prepare sauce. In medium saucepan, combine the zest of one orange, cornstarch (premixed in the orange juice), OJ, honey, soy, sriracha, garlic, ginger, and black pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium heat or until thick. Let simmer for 2 minutes on low heat as you cube the cooked chicken into bitesize pieces. Add chicken to sauce, stir to coat. Serve over roasted veggies, topped with sesame seeds.

Notes

*Note: if your oranges are more sweet than sour, put in a splash of rice wine/apple cider/white wine vinegar, or even some lemon juice.
