Crispy, sweet and tangy honey sesame chicken bowl with sautéed sugar snap peas! This recipe is a delicious alternative to your Asian takeout chicken!
This chicken was dipped in egg and a flour mixture to pan-fry in sesame oil until cooked throughout, then tossed with the honey sesame sauce!
Growing up, I’d eat popcorn chicken or orange chicken often and cooking up this recipe reminded me of those times! This is a great alternative to that deep fried chicken (even though both are just as delicious!).
I’ve tried this recipe with both oat flour and almond flour. Both work just as well! I’ve made a tweaked version of this recipe – Crispy Honey Sesame Chicken Lettuce Cups! The recipe in this post is similar but the sauce is a bit more simple!
I use to never sauté veggies unless it was in fried rice but I’m starting to do it again and I love it! For a good couple months, I just roasted all my veggies – zucchini, broccoli, squash, peppers, etc. It just made things easier! I’m starting to do more stir-fries recently!
This recipe may take a little extra time since you’re coating it to fry before tossing it with the sauce, but trust me, it is worth your time! 🙂 You’ll want to double or even triple the batch to ensure leftovers for dinner or the next day!

Do you know approximately how much 2 large chicken breasts weighs? I only have chicken thighs and just want to know how much I should use. Thanks! 🙂
Great recipe but the recipe needs more flour 1/2 cup is not enough for 2 large chicken breasts. I’m increasing mine to 3/4 cup next time. Also I felt like there wasn’t enough sauce so I would recommend doubling up on it unless you like dry chicken 😂
Soy sauce has gluten in it.
Some do, but not all. You can use Tamari
Have you got nutritional information please?
Can I substitute corn starch for xantham gum? If so same amount?
