1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts, pounded thin, cut into bite size pieces
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil (may sub. olive oil)
For the Chicken Breading:
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the Honey Lemon Ginger Sauce:
3 cloves garlic, minced
2-3 teaspoons freshly grated ginger*
1/2 cup honey
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
lemon zest from 1 lemon
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
sriracha (Asian hot chili sauce) to taste
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (for easy cleanup) and place a cooking rack on top; lightly spray cooking rack with cooking spray (if you don’t have a cooking rack, you can place chicken directly on foil that has been greased).
In a large bowl, whisk 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons water together. Combine Chicken Breading ingredients in large freezer bag. Dip the chicken pieces in the egg wash, let excess drip off (dabbing with paper towel if necessary) then place chicken in the flour mixture and shake until evenly coated. Evenly space chicken on cooking rack and lightly spray chicken with cooking spray.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes then move baking sheet 8-10 inches away from broiler and broil to desired crispiness (approximately 3-5 minutes). For extra crispiness, flip chicken over and broil the other side of chicken to desired crispiness, being careful not to burn chicken.
While the chicken is baking, heat 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and ginger and saute for 30 seconds, Add the remaining Honey Lemon Ginger Sauce ingredients EXCEPT for the sriracha and whisk to combine. Bring sauce to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until sauce thickens (approximately 2 minutes). Taste and stir in sriracha if desired.**
In a large bowl, toss baked chicken with Honey Lemon Ginger Sauce using a spatula until evenly coated. It will seem like not enough sauce, but keep mixing until it covers all the chicken.
