Easy Honey Garlic Sesame Chicken

I love making take-out dishes at home. From Crispy Asian Chicken Bites to Easy Chicken Stir Fry. Making these Asian inspired dishes at home is so much better and healthier!

This chicken is sweet with a hint of spice and tons of garlic flavor. If you like it a little spicier (like me) add some more crushed red pepper flakes! The sauce is made of honey, sesame oil, garlic, soy sauce and crushed red pepper flakes. As for the chicken I used boneless skinless chicken breast and cubed them into bite size pieces.

I love baking my chicken and coating it in panko breadcrumbs. It makes super crispy chicken bites that can be tossed in your favorite sauce.

This recipe takes about 30 minutes to put together from start to finish. It’s the perfect meal for a busy weeknight.
