Honey Teryaki Chicken

I got this recipe from a good friend just a couple of months ago, when I was searching for something to bring to a themed Scout Pack Meeting. I tried it, and loved it. When my friend made it for her family the first time, her husband asked her if she had gotten takeout! It is that delicious, and easy to make.

HONEY TERYAKI CHICKEN

2 lbs. boneless, skinless, chicken breast
2-3 T. oil
1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
2/3 c. soy sauce
2/3 c. honey
2 T. apple juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
sesame seeds

Cut chicken into 2 inch squares. Add oil to skillet over medium high heat. Mix flour, salt, and pepper in a paper sack or large plastic bag. Add chicken and shake to coat. Add chicken to skillet, and cook, turning as needed, for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, honey, juice, garlic, and ginger in a small pan and bring to a boil. Cook briefly and set aside. Remove chicken from oil and place in a baking dish. Pour soy sauce mixture over chicken and bake in a 375 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. Sprinkle sesame seeds over chicken, and serve with rice.
