Ingredients:

  • Using a sharp knife or kitchen sheers, cut chicken into 1 inch cubes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg with water. 
  • Pour egg over chicken and toss to coat all pieces with the egg. 
  • In a separate, large bowl, mix flour and dried seasonings. Whisk to combine. 
  • In a large skillet, add coconut oil and heat to low-medium. 
  • 5-6 cubes at a time, coat the chicken in the flour mixture and then carefully add to pan. 
  • *TIP* Your pan is ready to use when you take the back of a wooden spoon, dip it in the oil, and small bubbles start to form around the spoon.
  • Let the chicken cook 2-3 minutes per side. Repeat for all the chicken. Place on a clean dish when chicken has cooked on both sides. 
  • Add more coconut oil as needed. 
  • While your chicken cooks, mix all sauce ingredients in a food processor until sauce is smooth. 
  • Remove all the chicken and put on a plate off the side. 
  • Add sauce into the chicken pan. BE CAREFUL! Your pan is hot and may splatter.
  • Whisk the sauce to remove small bits of flour from the bottom of the pan. 
  • Let the sauce simmer for 4-5 minutes. It will begin to thicken and darken in color. 
  • Add chicken back to the pan and cook together 2-3 minutes, flipping once. 
  • Plate chicken on top of veggies, rice, rice noodles, or eat as it! 
  • And, don’t forget to ladle the sauce on top! 
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and green onions.
