  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons peeled and grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Sesame seeds and sliced green onions, for garnish
  • Rice and steamed broccoli, for serving


  • In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 2 minutes. Use a spatula to flip it over; cook the other side for an additional 1-2 minutes. It doesn’t have to be cooked through, just seared on the outside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, sesame oil, fresh ginger, garlic, and cornstarch.
  • Pour the sauce in the pan and stir. Let simmer for 4 to 5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked through.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions. Serve over rice and with steamed broccoli, if desired.
