Step 1

In a bowl, mix cubed chicken with the 1 cup of corn starch; coat thoroughly.

Heat a skillet with the coconut oil and pan fry chicken until slightly golden brown but NOT fully cooked (about 3-5 minutes)

In a large bowl mix sauce ingredients, and heat sauce in a saucepan until it just bubbles.

Once chicken is done being pan fried, place it in a baking dish and pour the sauce over it

Bake at 375 for 25 minutes

Garnish chicken with toasted sesame seeds and scallions/green onion.
