Total Time: 23 minutes
A simple yet delicious recipe that comes together quickly, and is naturally Paleo, Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Grain-free and YUMMY.


  • 2 lbs chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 5 Tbs honey, divided
  • 2 Tbs sesame seeds, divided
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder


  • Put 1 Tbs of oil into a large skillet / frying pan and heat over medium heat. Add the bite sized chicken breast, 3 Tbs of honey, 1 Tbs sesame seeds, 1 tsp ground ginger, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder and ½ tsp onion powder. Mix everything together.
  • Let everything sit for about 5-7mins before mixing, mix and then let it sit again, for another 5-7 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink and is completely cooked through.
  • Then increase the heat to medium high, add 2 Tbs honey and 1 Tbs sesame seeds and cook until caramelized. This was about 1 ½ minutes without mixing, then 2 1/2 minutes mixing often for me. Sprinkle with some more sesame seeds before serving.
