Baked Honey Sesame Chicken

Here is a recipe that I tried recently.  Of course I found it on Pinterest.  You can find the original recipe at The Recipe Critic.   I love these kinds of Chinese style chicken recipes.  You can make a couple different versions at the same time depending on your families likes and dislikes.

4 chicken breasts
1 cup cornstarch
3 eggs
salt and pepper
¼ cup canola or vegetable oil
Sauce:
¾ cup honey
¾ cup soy sauce
½ cup ketchup
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup rice wine vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbs cornstarch
additional sesame seeds for garnish

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.
In separate bowls, place cornstarch and slightly beaten eggs. Dip chicken into cornstarch then coat in egg mixture. I do like to get the excess cornstarch off and gently shake it in a wire strainer.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken until browned. Place the chicken in a 9 x 13 greased baking dish.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, minced garlic, and 1 T cornstarch. Pour over chicken and bake for 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

Stir the chicken every 15 minutes.  This made a lot of sauce for the amount of chicken.  I used 6 large breast and split them between two 13x9 pans.  I did end up by removing about half the sauce from this dish and it was perfect.
