Ingredients
  • 1½ c uncooked rice
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lb)
  • 1 sea salt
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tb coconut oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp grated fresh ginger (or ¼ tsp dry ground ginger)
  • ¾ c water
  • ⅓ c honey
  • ⅓ c soy sauce
  • 2 Tb ketchup
  • 1 Tb apple cider vinegar
  • ½ – ¾ tsp red pepper flakes (according to taste)
  • To thicken it:
  • ¼ c cold water
  • 1 Tb cornstarch
Instructions
  1. To begin, cook your rice according to the type of rice you have. While it cooks, prepare the chicken.
  2. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle them with the sea salt & freshly ground black pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium high heat. Toss in the chicken and cook until it is lightly golden in areas. This will take about 5 minutes or so, depending upon how hot your skillet is.
  4. Meanwhile, in a dish combine the garlic, ginger, water, honey,soy sauce, ketchup, apple cider vinegar and red pepper flakes. Give those a stir.
  5. When the chicken is lightly golden, pour in the sauce. Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. To thicken the sauce after it cooks, raise the heat in the skillet so that the mixture begins boiling again. In a small dish or glass, whisk together the ¼ cup of cold water and the cornstarch. Pour the smooth mixture into the skillet, and let it come to a boil, stirring continually. When thickens, turn off the heat.
  7. Serve this gorgeous chicken over a bed of your cooked rice.
  8. Enjoy!
