The sticky sauce adds a delightful combination of sweet, savory, and spicy flavors, thanks to the honey, soy sauce, minced ginger, and chili paste.

Cooking Tips:

  2. Coat Chicken Thoroughly: Coat the chicken pieces evenly with the egg and cornstarch mixture to achieve a crispy exterior.
  3. Preheat Sheet Pan: Preheat the sheet pan in the oven before adding the chicken and vegetables. This helps to crisp up the chicken quickly.
