Ingredients:

For the Chicken:

  • 1 lb (450g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Non-stick cooking spray

For the Honey Garlic Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly coat it with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In three separate shallow bowls, prepare the breading stations for the chicken. Place the all-purpose flour in the first bowl, the beaten eggs in the second bowl, and the panko breadcrumbs in the third bowl. Season the breadcrumbs with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Dredge each piece of chicken in the flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip it into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off. Finally, coat the chicken evenly in the panko breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.
  4. Place the breaded chicken pieces on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Lightly spray the tops of the chicken pieces with non-stick cooking spray to help them crisp up in the oven.
  5. Bake the chicken in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy, flipping halfway through the cooking time for even browning.
  6. While the chicken is baking, prepare the honey garlic sauce. In a small saucepan, combine the honey, reduced-sodium soy sauce, minced garlic, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat.
  7. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water until smooth to create a slurry. Slowly pour the slurry into the simmering sauce, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat.
  8. Once the chicken is cooked through and crispy, remove it from the oven and transfer it to a large mixing bowl. Pour the honey garlic sauce over the chicken and toss until evenly coated.
  9. Serve the crispy honey garlic chicken immediately, garnished with sesame seeds and chopped green onions if desired.
