  • c uncooked rice
  • 3 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (about 2 lb)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tb coconut oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger, or ¼ teaspoon dry ground ginger
  • ¾ c water
  • c honey
  • c soy sauce
  • 2 Tb ketchup
  • 1 Tb apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes, according to taste
  • ¼ c cold water
  • 1 Tb cornstarch


  • To begin, cook your rice according to the type of rice you have. While it cooks, prepare the chicken.
  • Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle them with the sea salt & freshly ground black pepper.
  • 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.
  • Meanwhile, in a dish combine the garlic, ginger, water, honey,soy sauce, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, and red pepper flakes. Give those a stir.
  • When the chicken is lightly golden, pour in the sauce. Bring it to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Serve this gorgeous chicken over a bed of your cooked rice.
  • Enjoy!
