Honey Sesame Chicken

Try this sweet and sticky Honey Sesame Chicken stir-fry for your next meal. The chicken may take a while to marinate, but it’s quick to prepare, and it tastes great.

Honey Sesame Chicken


4 (About 430 g) Skinless and Boneless Chicken Thighs, cut into bite sized cubes

2 tsp Corn Flour/Starch
Peanut Oil for stir-frying (about 2 Tbsp)
½ tsp Red Chili Flakes
1 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Honey
2 Tbsp Roasted White Sesame Seeds


1 Tbsp Shaoxing Cooking Wine

1 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce

1 tsp Dark Soy Sauce
1 tsp Red Chili Flakes
3 Tbsp Honey
2 tsp Oyster Sauce
½ tsp Sea Salt
A few dashes of White Pepper


Marinate the chicken cubes with wine, light and dark soy sauce, chili flakes, honey, oyster sauce, sea salt, and pepper for about 2 hours. Then discard some of the marinate liquid and mix in the corn flour/starch.

Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in a large wok or cast iron pan until hot. Add chicken cubes and stir briefly. When the chicken are sizzling fragrant, add the chili flakes, dark soy sauce, honey, sesame seeds and stir vigorously, switch off the heat, and serve immediately.
