Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 20 mins
Total: 30 mins
Serves:

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken thighs, boneless, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 8 oz green peas, frozen and thawed
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt, plus more to taste
  • ¾ tsp ground black pepper, plus more to taste

To Serve:

  • 1 wedge lime
  • ¼ tsp mixed sesame seeds
  • 1 cup rice, per serving

Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the salt, flour, and turmeric. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Set aside.

  2. In another mixing bowl, combine the honey, water, and ground black pepper. Stir until honey has dissolved. Set aside.

  7. Serve immediately with rice and lime wedges. Garnish with sesame seeds.
