Sticky Sesame Chicken


1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs

2 T. olive oil

2 tsp. tapioca flour

2 T. sesame seeds

1/4 C. chopped fresh cilantro

4 lime wedges


1/4 C. coconut aminos

1 tsp. erythritol brown sugar replacement

1 T. minced fresh garlic

1 T. minced fresh gingerroot

2 tsp. sesame oil

3 T. rice wine vinegar


Pat the chicken dry. Dice into 1/2-inch pieces and season it with salt and pepper to taste. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, erythritol brown sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and transfer to the refrigerator for 30 minutes to marinate.  Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large sauté pan. Remove the chicken from the marinade, allowing the excess to drip away. Reserve the marinade. Place the chicken in the hot pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add the tapioca flour to the marinade and whisk to combine. Add the marinade to the pan with the chicken and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until the sauce thickens. Evenly divide among 4 bowls and serve the chicken garnished with sesame seeds, cilantro, and lime wedges. Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, this dish is good for 3 to 4 days.
