  • In a small sauce pan whisk together all sauce ingredients except for corn starch slurry. Bring to a boil. In a small bowl combine cold water and corn starch for the slurry. Add to boiling sauce. Reduce to a simmer and allow to cook a couple more minutes until thick.
  • Add sauce to chicken and stir to coat. Serve with rice and scallions or sesame seeds if desired.
