Step 1

Chop chicken breast into cubes.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, beat egg whites and cayenne powder together. Add chicken cubes and toss in egg white mixture. Coat evenly.

Step 3

Over medium heat in a skillet pan, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Empty the chicken out onto a plate and set the skillet back on the heat.

Step 6

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).

Step 7

Toss in the browned chicken pieces and coat the cubes in the sauce. Cook for another 6 to 8 minutes, until sizzling.

Step 8

Serve immediately. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds, if you want to.
