  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts⁣
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos⁣
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil or avocado oil⁣
  • 3 tbsp arrowroot or tapioca flour or corn starch⁣
  • 2 tbsp honey⁣
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp garlic powder⁣
  • 1 tsp sriracha (optional, but recommended!)⁣
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds (you can use more if desired)⁣
  • 1 tsp sea salt⁣
  • 1 tsp pepper⁣


  • Cut chicken into tiny cubes and place them into a bowl. 
  • Coat with the arrowroot/tapioca flour/corn starch and toss with the salt and pepper. 
  • Set aside. 
  • In another bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, honey, ginger, garlic, sriracha, and sesame seeds. 
  • Set aside. 
  • Place a pan on medium heat on the stove. 
  • Add the oil to the pan. 
  • Once hot, add the chicken and stir. Add a little more oil if needed so the chicken doesn’t stick. 
  • Stir for about 5 to 6 minutes, until the edges start to brown. 
  • Next, add the sauce, coating the chicken. 
  • Cook for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, until the sauce starts to thicken and a nice glaze forms over the chicken.
  • Remove from heat and enjoy!
