Ingredients

For the chicken:

  • 1 pound chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • For the sauce:
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, freshly grated
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • rice, optional, to taste, cooked, for serving
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced, for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, for garnish

Directions

Step 1 –Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 3 –Season the chicken pieces with the salt and the pepper.

Step 4 –Place the eggs and the panko into two separate shallow bowls.

Step 5 –Working in batches, dip the chicken pieces into the eggs and then dredge them in the panko and press to coat.
