2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1.In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, dried oregano, and cayenne pepper.
2.Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces, then coat them in the flour mixture.
3.In a large skillet, heat about 1 inch of oil over medium-high heat. Fry the chicken pieces in batches until golden and crispy, about 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

6.Add the crispy chicken pieces to the sauce and toss to coat evenly.
7.Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
8.Serve the crispy honey orange chicken over steamed rice or noodles.
