To make the marinade, place the sesame oil, honey, chilli flakes and soy sauce in a bowl. Whisk well.

Place the chicken breast in a bowl and add the marinade. Mix to evenly coat.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or frying pan over a medium heat.

Add the chicken (without the marinade). Cook for 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and thoroughly cooked.

Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Add the garlic to the bowl of marinade. Add the cornstarch mixture and whisk.

Pour into the skillet and reduce heat to low. Simmer the sauce, stirring well until thickened, around 1-2 minutes.

Return the chicken to the pan and coat with the sauce. Cook for 4 minutes, or until the chicken is heated thoroughly. 

Serve garnished with sesame seeds and spring onions.
