• 1-1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken tenders, breasts, or thighs, cut into 1” cubes

• sea salt and ground pepper, to taste

• 1/4 cup flour

• 3 large eggs, beaten

• 1/3 cup raw sesame seeds

• 1 tsp onion powder

• 1 tsp garlic powder

• 1/2 cup coconut aminos or low-sodium soy sauce

• 2 Tbsp rice vinegar

• 1/4 cup raw honey or pure maple syrup

• 1 Tbsp toasted sesame oil

• 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

• 1 Tbsp Arrowroot powder or cornstarch

• 2 Tbsp water


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F and line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.

2. Lightly season your chicken pieces with sea salt and pepper.

3. Place chicken into a large bowl or bag then add the flour and gently toss throughout to lightly coat chicken on all sides. Shake off any excess.

4. Prepare 2 shallow plates: One with your beaten eggs. On the second plate whisk together the sesame seeds, onion, and garlic powder until combined well.

5. Dip each piece of floured chicken into the beaten eggs, then transfer to the plate with your sesame mixture to evenly coat on all sides.

6. Place your coated pieces of chicken on the prepared sheet pan in a single layer.

7. Very lightly spritz with avocado oil or olive oil spray then bake for 24-26 minutes in your preheated oven, or until the chicken is cooked through and golden brown. Flip the pieces halfway.

8. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan add the coconut aminos or soy sauce, vinegar, honey, sesame oil, and chili flakes. In a small bowl, whisk the Arrowroot/cornstarch and water together until smooth, then add it to the saucepan. Bring this sauce to a simmer, and cook while whisking until thickened, about 2-3 minutes.

9. Once your chicken is finished baking, remove from the oven and lightly drizzle with the sauce. Gently toss to coat.

10. Serve over cooked rice and enjoy!
