- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- Sesame seeds for garnish
- Sliced green onions for garnish
- In a bowl, whisk together orange juice, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, and grated ginger to create the marinade.
- Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish, and pour half of the marinade over the chicken. Seal the bag or cover the dish and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove chicken from the marinade (discard the marinade) and cook the chicken for about 5-6 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked and juices run clear.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining marinade and cornstarch. Pour the mixture into the skillet with the cooked chicken and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
- Remove from heat and garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
