Course Main Course


  • 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken thighs, chopped into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of Challenge Unsalted Butter
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon of salt adjust to your liking
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes optional
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons of honey adjust according to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tablespoon of rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of Challenge Unsalted Butter
  • Chopped cilantro or green onions for garnish


  • Toss the chicken pieces in a bowl with cornstarch until they’re evenly coated.
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil along with Challenge Unsalted Butter.
  • Add the coated chicken to the skillet, season with salt and pepper, and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in minced garlic, red pepper flakes (if using), honey, cilantro, rice vinegar, and more unsalted butter.
  • Saute until the chicken is golden brown and coated in the luscious sauce, which should take about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Once done, remove from the heat and garnish with additional cilantro. Serve over rice, steamed veggies, or wrap it in lettuce leaves!


Quick tip: If you only have salted butter on hand, you can still use it. Challenge Butter has a helpful article on substituting salted for unsalted butter. Since we’re using only about 3 tablespoons of butter in this recipe, the salt addition is minimal. Adjust the salt you add accordingly. Enjoy your delightful meal!
