  • cup chicken stock Note 2
  • 1 Tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • cup soy sauce Note 1
  • 2 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ginger powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • sesame seeds, optional garnish


  • In a small bowl, combine chicken broth and cornstarch until smooth. Set aside.
  • Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet, over medium heat.
  • Add in the chicken to brown meat, about 4 minutes.
  • Mix in soy sauce, ketchup, paprika, cumin, and garlic powder.
  • Simmer, stirring occasionally for 3 minutes to blend flavors.
  • Pour the chicken stock mixture over the chicken. Stir to combine.
  • Continue to cook for another 5-7 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened. (Note 3)
  • Serve over rice, cauliflower rice, or spaghetti squash. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, optional.


Note 1: We use low-sodium soy sauce.
Note 2: We use low-sodium, fat-free chicken stock. 
Note 3: Chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165°F when fully cooked. Use a meat thermometer. The chicken should have no pink inside. 
Storage: Keep leftovers covered in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
