Honey Sesame Chicken

This was so easy and so yummy! I love almost all Chinese inspired dishes. My kids loved it and so did I. It would have been even better if I had time to make fried rice, but the brown rice went perfectly with it. 

Honey Sesame Chicken
from Skinny Mommy

3 chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1/2 cup honey
1 Tablespoon of sesame seed oil
1-2 teaspoons of siracha or other Asian hot sauce
2 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
Sesame seeds (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400. 

Place flour in a bowl. Dip the chicken into the flour, covering it completely and shaking off the excess. Line a baking pan (with high sides) with parchment paper and add the chicken making sure they don't touch each other. Bake for 15 minutes. 

While the chicken is baking, mix together the soy sauce, sesame seed oil, honey, and siracha. Take out the chicken and pour the sauce over it, stirring to coat each piece. Put the chicken back in the oven and bake for 10 minutes more, stirring a few times to be sure every piece is glazed evenly. Toss with the sesame seeds if you desire and serve over rice.
