  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tsps cornstarch, divided 
  • Olive oil cooking spray, for coating 
  • 2 tsp water

  • Meanwhile, mix remaining cornstarch and water together in small bowl until combined. Bring to a boil ketchup, San-J Sweet Tamari, vinegar, sesame oil and garlic in small saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in cornstarch mixture and cook, over medium-low heat until thickened and flavors develop, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Toss chicken, sauce and sesame seeds in large bowl until evenly coated. Garnish with green onions. Serve with rice and enjoy.
