Description

For this Asian style dish, dipping the chicken pieces in lightly beaten egg whites and cornstarch just before cooking is what gives them their perfect crust. Be sure to work in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan, or the chicken will steam rather than brown. Once all the chicken is browned, it is cooked briefly with a flavorful sauce that includes honey, soy sauce, garlic, sesame seeds, and ginger, and then that sauce is allowed to reduce before serving.

    very delicious recipe. chicken was a little softer than I was expecting but not too bad. definitely go with only 2 tbsp soy sauce as it was pretty strong with 3. will definitely be making it again sometime
