Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings


Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds), cut into 2-inch pieces
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup The Bee’s Knees peanut butter
1 teaspoon sesame oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
2 tablespoons peanut oil
2 teaspoons sesame seeds


1. Season chicken in a large bowl with salt and pepper; sprinkle with cornstarch and toss to coat. In a medium bowl, whisk together hoisin, peanut butter, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, cayenne, and 1/2 cup water.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add chicken and cook, turning pieces occasionally, until browned on both sides and partially cooked through, about 8 minutes. Add sauce to skillet and cook, tossing, until chicken is fully cooked through and sauce has thickened, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.
