In This Recipe
Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and lightly pound them to even them out. Slice them into smaller pieces or strips. Marinate the chicken pieces for 30 minutes to 2 hours with the lemon juice, ginger, garlic and cayenne pepper.
Heat olive oil in a frying pan on high heat. When the oil is hot, add in the chicken pieces along with the marinade. Seize for a few minutes on high heat stirring occasionally, then reduce heat to low, add the honey, cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes until they are tender and thoroughly cooked. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately with the juice from the marinade.
