  7. While the chicken is baking, prepare the honey garlic sauce. Add 1 tablespoon of the water to a small bowl. Add in cornstarch and whisk until smooth, mix in the remaining water then set aside.

  8. Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and saute for about 30 seconds, just until lightly golden to remove the harsh bite. Remove pan from heat.

  9. Add in honey and soy sauce and whisk water-cornstarch mixture once more and pour into pan.

  11. Toss chicken with the sauce just immediately before serving and sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve with rice or cauliflower rice if desired.

Recipe Notes


Note that the coating of the chicken won’t be very golden brown after baking. Most of the color comes from the sauce so don’t over-bake the chicken or it will dry.
