First of all, this is very important that you don’t forget: A large part of the flavor that Chinese rice with chicken and honey is known for comes from the sauce.

Also, vinaigrette with vegetables and sesame oil is crucial.

However, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, we are about to show you everything you will need and the steps. Remember, you just have to follow the directions well.


  • A cup of honey (110 ml)
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch (25 g)
  • 2 cups of wheat flour (200 g)
  • 4 medium chicken breasts (500 g)
  • 3 tablespoons of soy sauce (110 ml)
  • Three tablespoons of butter (100 g)
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil (110 ml)
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil (35 ml)
  • 1 finely chopped red pepper (15 g)
  • 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (90 ml)


  • Start by finding a large saucepan, one that has enough space for all of the ingredients.
  • Once you have found it, cover it with olive oil and let it heat up.
  • Then, put the flour in a bowl and coat the chicken with it (previously cut into squares).
  • Once they’re all well-coated, put them in the sauce pan until they are golden brown.
  • Take the chicken out of the pan and put it onto wax paper to absorb the excess oil.
  • Now, start with the salsa. Put the cornstarch into a medium bowl and add a little water. Put off to the side.
  • Again with the saucepan, mix the honey, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, sesame oil and pepper and put them over a low flame. Keep stirring so that it mixes well.
  • Let it boil before you turn off the flame. Then, add the cornstarch mixture and stir until it is thick and has a nice texture.
  • Last comes the easiest step: put white rice with salt and a trickle of olive oil in a small pot. Make the rice as your normally would and, when it’s done, turn off the flame and put the rice off to the side.
  • Add the rice to the large saucepan with the sauce and the vegetable oil. Put the flame at medium intensity and cook for about 15 minutes.
