  • cup low sodium Soy sauce regular or gluten-free
  • 2 tablespoons Ketchup
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • ½ teaspoon Ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
  • 2 tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha
  • cup Chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons Sesame oil
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless Chicken Breasts cut into 1-inch pieces
  • sesame seeds optional garnish
  • sliced green onion/scallions optional garnish


  • Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl: soy sauce, ketchup, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, ginger powder, rice vinegar, honey, brown sugar and sriracha. Whisk to mix together.
  • Combine the chicken broth and cornstarch; whisk to fully combine and dissolve the cornstarch.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet (preferably non-stick) over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook 4 minutes, until white on the outside. The chicken should not be fully cooked at this point.
    TIP: allow the chicken to sit for about 20 seconds before stirring to cook on another side (vs stirring constantly).
  • Add the sauce to the skillet. Stir to coat the chicken. Cook for 3 minutes.
  • Pour the broth and cornstarch mixture over the chicken. Continue cooking for 4-6 minutes or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly and the sauce has thickened.
  • Serve over rice with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and sliced scallions!



This is delicious with a generous sprinkle of sesame seeds on top.
● You can serve it over rice or with noodles on the side.
● The sauce is sweet and savory and slightly sticky. A total crowd favorite!
