General Panda’s Spicy Garlic Honey Sesame Chicken

Chicken, Recipes | February 5, 2015 | By

This recipe needs no description – the title says it all. All I have to say is just try it for the flavor explosion of the century! If you have time, marinate the raw chicken in the sauce overnight but it’s not necessary because the caramelization of the sauce on the chicken after cooking gives it more than enough flavor. Serve with broccoli, over a bed of cauliflower rice or just by itself. General Panda approved!
