  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon chile paste
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • scallions for garnish
  • sesame seeds for garnish


  • I recommend serving this over rice. Begin the rice before you prepare the rest of the dish so that it is finished when the chicken is.
  • Whisk together the soy sauce, apple cider veingar, garlic, honey, ginger, chile paste, and cornstarch.
  • Set a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. Heat the olive oil and then add the chicken, cooking until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Pour the sauce over the chicken and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  • Serve over rice and garnish with sesame seeds and cut up scallions.
