Instructions

Start by stirring the salt, pepper, and eggs in a bowl. Once combined, grab another bowl and combine the flour and cornstarch. Dip each piece of chicken into the bowl with the egg mixture first, and then the flour mixture. Do this for each piece of chicken and make sure they’re covered really well.

Next, you’ll heat your oil in a pan to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Add your chicken to the pan and cook for five minutes, or until they appear crispy and golden brown in color. Make sure to drain the oil from your chicken onto paper towels.

While the chicken is cooking, you can start on the sauce. Combine honey, soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and cornstarch. Heat some oil in a separate large pan and then add the garlic to cook for 30 seconds. Add the honey mixture and bring to a simmer. Cook for three minutes, or until it thickens.

The last thing you need to do is to add your chicken to the sauce and toss it to coat it in the delicious mixture!
