Step 1

Prepare rice as per instructions on the package and blanch broccoli. Begin sauce in large bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1/2 cup cold water until smooth. Add garlic, ginger, honey, soy sauce, and red pepper flakes. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix cornstarch, salt and pepper together until combined. Add chicken and already blanched broccoli and toss until coated. Heat a large nonstick skillet with vegetable oil. Shake excess coating off the chicken and cook in batches until golden, 4-6 minutes. Add the sauce mixture and cook until the sauce has thickened. Plate with rice. Add scallions and sesame seeds for garnish.
