- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (I don’t recommend chicken breasts, as they tend to dry out)
- 1/2 cup coconut aminos
- 3 tablespoons honey (or use 3 large, pitted Medjool dates to make this recipe Whole30 compliant – see instructions below)
- 4 cloves garlic (fresh, minced)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ginger (minced)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Used GF Tamari instead of aminos. Used some corn starch to thicken sauce during last step. Really works for my take out Chinese craving.

It was a pretty salty dish and I didn’t add the salt recommended but still good my kids weren’t a fan though so probably won’t make it again

Delicious! I slowed down on the salt and it ended up perfect with rice.

I made this in the instant pot and added rice with it. The chicken and sauce came out great! But I will say it was very salty - next time I will probably not add the salt.

I made a few changes, but it was delicious! 1. Used 3ish lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs 2. Used yacon syrup instead of honey 3. Used about a tsp of fresh ginger instead of 1 1/2 tsp 4. Added a little bit of garlic granules at the end 5. Didn't cut up all the chicken at the beginning, just tossed it in and shredded it once cooked Served on jasmine rice with broccoli on top. I will probably be making it again. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I didn't find it too salty. However, I did have 1 lb extra of chicken, and used less ginger than called for. So maybe that makes a difference... For those using soy sauce instead of coconut aminos, the aminos are sweeter and soy sauce is generally more savory. If using soy sauce, I would probably not use that much salt.

Used low sodium soy sauce in place of coconut aminos, skipped the ginger (I personally hate ginger) added in some fresh, local Morel mushrooms and paired with a whole grain Basmati rice - to die for! 😍😍

Ok - should have used soy sauce and also sauce once reduced was too salty

Wonderful! Definitely would try again! It was super easy to make. I used low sodium soy sauce because I didn’t have coconut aminos and it was really good!

I ended up using soy sauce instead of the cocunut aminos and it turned out way too salty. This is just not a good recipe imo.

It was ok. I felt like something was missing. It needed salt, so maybe next time I will do half soy sauce and half coco aminos. I added broccoli for more texture and that was good but still felt like it needed more. I will consider making again.

I forgot to add the salt from the beginning. I added it later and it was too salty. I will cut the salt next time. Good recipe though and I will definitely make it again.

Chicken was great, It really fell apart once I took it out of the pot. However, I found the cook time to be a little too long. The sauce was definitely worth cooking. I Would cook it again.

So good my uber-picky child ate his entire share, no complaints! Needless to say, will make this again if he’s going to eat like that every time. The chicken was a little dry. As for a syrupy sauce, I had to leave it in the pan over heat for 10+ minutes to get it to syrupy. It was a very good sauce, though. And my first time cooking with coconut aminos. Couldn’t tell any difference.

it was great just extremely salty! Next time ill use low sodium soy sauce and no extra salt.

Great meal. Chicken was super tender. Cooked rice and broccoli while heating the sauce. I also had trouble with it thickening even after adding a bit of cornstarch/water.

Husband LOVED it. I didn’t do the extra step of simmering the sauce; instead I added some chopped kale for a splash of green 30-60 minutes before it was done.

ok so, coconut aminos seem to be like white rhinos. i was told by several people to use liquid aminos as a substitute. NOPE! Too salty. Good flavor though. Im saving the reduction in cubes for other dishes.

I think I messed up somewhere as it didnt turn out how i expected but it still had a great taste and the whole family enjoyed it. will definitely be making it again.
