Chop chicken breast into cubes.
In a medium bowl, beat egg whites and cayenne powder together. Add chicken cubes and toss in egg white mixture. Coat evenly.
Over medium heat in a skillet pan, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
Once oil has melted, add in chicken cubes and brown evenly. Don't worry about cooking the chicken completely, there is more cooking time ahead.
Empty the chicken out onto a plate and set the skillet back on the heat.
Add remaining ingredients to the pan and bring heat to high. Once the sauce begins to bubble, reduce the heat to medium-low and stir continuously (2 minutes).
Toss in the browned chicken pieces and coat the cubes in the sauce. Cook for another 6 to 8 minutes, until sizzling.
Serve immediately. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds, if you want to.
